Councillor John Moonde said in a speech on behalf of Her Worship the Mayor, Agnes Kafula, that Jazz music in its various genres in Namibia has proven to be a growing brand which many people relate to. Moonde emphasized the importance of music as a universal language that can unite people across cultures. Its unifying power could be attested with the successes of the Windhoek Jazz Festival over the years since inception.

“Jazz music in its various genres has indeed proven to be a growing brand of which many of us are able to relate to. Thus the hosting of the Windhoek Jazz Festival continues to significantly contribute to elevating Windhoek’s status as a vibrant city, both culturally and artistically”, he said on behalf of the mayor.
