The Southern African Jazz Music Awards (SAJAZZMAs)
© Copyright SA Jazz Music Awards 2016 (All Rights Reserved)
The first of its kind to recognise participants in the jazz culture within the SADC region. It has been said that music is a universal language understood by all, the SAJAZZMAs are here to promote and reward makers of such a language.

We go across the cultural divides to bring our people together and reward their excellence. It would be an injustice to the art to isolate artists of one land from those of another as if they do not influence one another. The art of jazz has been brewed across borders, cultures and religions.

Artists recognised in their respective countries will further gain recognition in the entire SADC region and awards will be given to those deemed best in Southern Africa.

This will be followed by touring performances by such artists in the various countries. This will be a grand opportunity for artists to export their music
