Jazz music is one of the few high art musical forms enjoying a worldwide listenership. It employs every instrument under the sun. Even the etymology of the word ‘jazz’ has been taken to be connected with a root meaning ‘energy’, ‘spirit’, ‘vigour’ or ‘courage’ – traits that were necessary to counter Western methods of formality, repetition and perfect harmony that had been the norm for centuries.
Due to the importance of this often overlooked and misunderstood genre, we have chosen jazz as our theme of the month every 1st Sunday of the month come jazz with the best of the best in Kampala at Biyem Hotel.
