Jonathan Butler, the headlining act for this year’s Safaricom Jazz International Festival, began his singing career at age 7, releasing his first album in 1973 and winning the Best New Artist Grammy in South Africa the following year at age 12. He was the first black artist played on white South African radio, earning three gold records in 1975.

A decade later, Butler moved to London, and released his first album internationally. The self-titled set went gold in 1987 in the UK and in the USA. In concert, Butler remains a captivating and powerful performer, pouring his heart into selections from his immense catalogue. The festival will take place at the Ngong Race Course on February 22nd. Don’t miss out.
