Jazz Africa: featuring Tony Kofi and Basil Hodge

Poster of Jazz Africa event

The next fundraising concert for the National Jazz Archive will be on Saturday 29 April in Loughton, Essex, as we celebrate UNESCO International Jazz Day!

Telling the story of jazz from where it really came from, we're proud to present the Basil Hodge Quintet featuring two of the UK's busiest and most exciting jazz performers, the irrepressible Tony Kofi on saxophone and the uber-cool Basil Hodge on keys.

This is the story of the diversity and inclusivity of jazz from across the African continent, where you'll hear the roots of blues, jazz, and almost all of today's modern musical sounds.

Expecting breath-taking musicianship, driving rhythms and some inevitable in-the-aisle dancing, this is one for families of all ages and heritages!

The fundraising concert is at Loughton Methodist Church, 260 High Road, Loughton, Essex, IG10 1RB. Doors open at 1.30pm with the concert starting at 2.30pm.
