Anticipation builds ahead of Cape Town jazz festival

The Cape Town International Jazz Festival is set to be a huge event and the final line-up has now been announced.

Organisers recently confirmed that US singer Jill Scott will perform live and she will be joined by her fellow countryman Steve Tyrell.

Another American - Pharoahe Monch - has also been added to the bill, taking the total number of acts to 41.

It is the 13th time that the city has held the festival and people taking luxury holidays in South Africa will be able to attend the two-day event when it kicks off at the Cape Town International Convention Centre on 30th March.

The festival has gone from strength to strength since it was first established and up to 34,000 are expected to attend this year's version.

Scott, Tyrell and Monch will join a star-studded jazz line-up, which already includes the likes of Kevin Mohogany, Patti Austin, Marcus Miller and Third World.
