Art is how we decorate space; music is how we decorate time, on that note, Stanbic Bank, hosted renowned jazz legends under one umbrella at the Conference Center for this year’s edition of Stanbic Bank Ghana Jazz Festival. All these legends communicated through sax and string. It’s was three days fun packed activities.
The ever enchanting jazz goddess, Stephanie Benson took the audience on a cruise control, while illuminating them with an electrifying & spellbinding performance to the extent of challenging patrons to step out of their comfort zone to dance with her, this made her stand tall amongst other performers.
Legendary Richard Bona also thrilled the audience with a splendid performance when he played various instruments with his lips to create ear candy harmonies. Tom Braxton and Aka Blay made sure they reached the climax of their performance. Gerald Albright didn’t disappoint either, he displayed legendary stage craft. Saxophonist extraordinaire, Steve Bedi raised the bar, Adoma was phenomenal on the night alongside very other act billed to perform.
The jazz festival was an unforgettable night of fire works, one would love to attend over and over again. Turn up was extremely massive, in fact the ambiance at the centre got patrons erected on their feet.
