Jazz Brigade in Kenya
The Jazz Brigade featuring Dorota Miskiewicz performed in one of the biggest African jazz festivals, Safaricom Jazz International Festival. The band is a combination of musicians from different cultural backgrounds. Miki Hayama from Japan, Freddie Henrics and Newman Taylor Baker from USA, Essiet Okon Essiet coming from Nigeria, Dorota and Sylwester Ostrowski from Poland. The power of jazz makes this kind of collaboration possible! Nairobi audience enjoyed Polish songs played by this international group very much. The festival gathered together many wonderful African ensembles and ended up with a great show of legendary drummer Paco Sery. Apart from playing the concert in the festival musicians from Sylwester Ostrowski’s group ran workshops in a nearby music school and for Ghetto Classics, a project that helps children from disadvantaged families in Nairobi slums. We want to thank Jazz Sister Cities for helping in organizing this trip.
