The Ladies of Jazz is an inaugural event that hopes to launch Jazz back into the local music industry.

The group will feature legendary jazz guitarist, Tom Mawi, his daughter-in-law- Annie Mawi, Laisa Vulakoro, Josephine Dass and Sassy.

“The Pacific music industry is getting quite commercialized, it’s growing, it would be nice to encourage, It would like to see young musicians and performers move to jazz because it’s a totally different outlet from reggae.”

Ladies of Jazz will be held on Saturday the 23rd of November at Shenanigans in Suva.
