A Platform For Development


The jazz festival format is the perfect platform for interaction between foreign and local musicians, for cultivating a music industry infrastructure, for creating quality cultural experiences, and for educating and developing young talent. A music festival-based development platform will eventually evolve into a socioeconomic asset for Dar Es Salaam.
