Kota Kinabalu Jazz Festival June 21

Kota Kinabalu: The Rotary Club of Kota Kinabalu (RCKK) is set to hold the 2nd Kota Kinabalu Jazz Festival on June 21 at the Jesselton Point.

RCKK President Frankie Fu said last year's inaugural event was a crowd-puller, drawing as many as 1800 people, young and old alike, and from all walks of life.

"It goes to show that KK folks are receptive to the idea of a jazz festival to inject live entertainment into the city, among other creations. As such, we are motivated to repeat the event this year albeit with different performers from abroad in addition to local artistes. It's going to be just as exciting," he said.

Fu said the second jazz festival is the key event in the first Kota Kinabalu Arts Festival featuring four events in June. His Co-Organising Chairperson is Datuk Adeline Leong who is President of the Society of Performing Arts Kota Kinabalu Sabah (SPArKS).

The fascinating Aseana Percussion Unit (APU), among other performers, will make a special appearance at the 2nd KK Jazz Festival.
