The Sankofa Jazz Fest is a free event that celebrates jazz through the performing and visual arts while welcoming its alumni and community back to reconnect on the historic grounds of Liberty City’s African Heritage Cultural Arts Center (AHCAC).

It features an outdoor concert on Saturday, April 7, 2018 from 2 p.m. – 7 p.m., headlined by vocalist, drummer and composer Jamison Ross, a Grammy-nominated artist and the winner of the prestigious 2012 Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz International Drums Competition. He is preceded by a spectacular lineup including Jesse Jones Jr. Quintet, Melton Mustafa on Sax, Allen Paul Trio and LaVie.  Festival goers should bring lawn chairs, lots of friends (but no food, beverages or coolers allowed). Additionally, the AHCAC’s Amadlozi Gallery presents Mystic Fusion, an art exhibition by MOAL.
