Top American singer-songwriter, record producer and TV personality, Keyshia Cole and our very own International music singing super star are 2 of the main stars that would feature at this year's Calabar International Jazz Festival set for around Easter period in beautiful Calabar, Cross Rivers State. 

Other top notch artistes that would show class at the event are as follows- Hugh Masekela, Kunle Ayo, Darey, Jimmy Dludlu, Yinka Davies and a few others. 

The Calabar International Jazz festival would span over 4 days- from Friday, April 18 till Monday, April 21, 2014. One of the artistes, is the award winning Kunle Ayo  who just had a fantastic showcase of talent at the live recording in London tagged ''Under the Bridge, Stamford Bridge, London. So we are sure the master guitarist would have another superlative showcase in Calabar come 2 weeks time.

According to the Governor of Cross River, the invitation-only concert is an important one: "Having endured the horrors of Apartheid, we feel it is fitting to have Hugh Masekela help us to highlight this disturbing new trend in parts of our beloved country, even as we search for solutions. We must never forget the victims."
Calabar Jazz Festival is the backbone of a great Easter weekend break for Nigerians, looking forward to escaping hectic city life in Lagos, Aubuja and Port Harcourt. Calabar beckons with its reputation for being the cleanest, greenest and safest state capital in Nigeria. In addition to the concerts, there will be fun day-time activities and tours for all the family, fabulous VIP after-parties, and, of course, an opportunity to sample some of the local delicacies which have made Calabar famous with food lovers.

While the concerts will light up the night at Calabar's Cultural Centre, with a glittering array of music stars, the venue will play host to an intriguing range of daytime activities. Music Meets Photography brings together some of Nigeria's most promising creative photographers with an audience seemingly addicted to being 'snapped', against a backdrop of live jazz and local music. Art lovers will be able to visit a gallery of beautiful paintings and sculpture, curated by Terra Kulture, in the large and imposing lobby.
