Last year, WWOZ visited Johannesburg, South Africa to attend the Standard Bank JOY OF JAZZ Festival.  We were invited again to celebrate the 15th year of the festival, and we are going to be in good company, since several New Orleans culture standard-bearers are included in the line-up: Donald Harrison, Jr., Terrence Blanchard, Christian Scott, James Andrews, Marlon Jordan, Kid Merv, and various Batiste family members: David, Damond, Jamal and Ryan.

The festival will take place over three days (August 22 to 24), and presents 9 different stages with artists such as Ahmad Jamal, Abdullah Ibrahim, Rene Marie, Sipho Mabuse, Carmen Lundy, Eddie Daniels and many more.

Stay tuned all next week, as we will be bringing you sounds and images from the fest.
