Since 2006 the French Institute of Mauritius has brought together musicians from France and Mauritius for a working residency on jazz leading to a grand concert known as “Blues dan Jazz”.


Standard Bank partners again this year with l’Institut Français de Maurice (IFM) in the 11th “Blues dan Jazz” in Mauritius on 6 and 7 May.


Performances will see the collaboration of Jacky Terrasson with two Mauritian jazz geniuses Philippe Thomas and Kersley Pytambar. Adding to the pool of talent is South African talent Siya Makuzeni, a winner of the Standard Bank 2016 Young Artist Award for Music and Jazz, who will also perform.


Siya Makuzeni is a trombone player and vocalist, and stands out for her unique and pure voice. She has played in some of the biggest jazz events in the world: the International Jazz Festival in Cape Town, Stockholm, Paris and Vienna.


You can catch Siya Makuzeni at 8pm on 6 May at l’Institut Français de Maurice, Rose Hill, Mauritius and Jacky Terrasson at 8pm on 7 May at Conservatoire François Mitterand, Quatre-Bornes, Mauritius.
