Overview

TThe International Jazz Extravaganza is a platform that showcases all the greats of jazz music. The line-up is usually filled with a combination of international acts and local jazz legends. The International Jazz Extravaganza will be held in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal, along the lush eastern seaboard of South Africa, and of course will also once again be wowing jazz fans with inspiring star performances and unmatched hospitality when it returns to the Durban ICC Arena.

So far three acts for the night have been announced – the edgy US jazz vocalist, Kurt Elling; well-known local artist, Nduduzo Makhatini; and highly-acclaimed vocalist and pianist, Thandi Ntuli.

The first IJE offered something that no other jazz event in South Africa catered for – entertainment for the pure jazz lover. This, along with a luxurious hospitality experience that combines music, food, and travel is what makes IJE so unique.
