Ranging from spiritual to jazz, to hip-hop and soul, Nova Scotia has a rich heritage of African-Nova Scotian music. This year, TD Halifax Jazz Festival celebrates this musical legacy, presenting a variety of FREE events that draw inspiration from the unique experience of the African-Nova Scotian community.

Presented throughout the month of February - African Heritage Month - this exciting series includes a concert with JR Smith Quartet, film screening of Chasing Trane, and music workshop with Youth Art Connections and musicians Owen Lee and Shawn Downey, for youth who are interested in hip-hop, spoken-word and other forms of open lyricism.
