South Africa has a rich jazz history with numerous world class jazz luminaries. The intention is for the Foundation to establish an internationally acclaimed SOUTH AFRICAN JAZZ MUSEUM located in Cape Town.

This museum will, to a large extent, be based on the world renowned American Jazz Museum located in Kansas City.

At such a jazz museum homage will be paid to South Africa’s jazz greats (many who have passed on) and display the rich history of jazz emanating from this part of the world to both current and future generations.

Some SA Jazz greats:

  • Hugh Masekela
  • Robbie Jansen
  • Abdullah Ibrahim
  • Winston Mankunku
  • Basil "Manenberg" Coetzee
  • Sibongile Khumalo
  • Sophia Foster
  • Tandi Klaasen
