Now in its seventh year, the festival, which takes place on Saturday at the Hazelmere Dam, is not only about entertaining jazz lovers but also about giving back to people in need.

"With the MTN SA Foundation's assistance we've chosen Cotlands KZN, an organisation that takes care of orphansed and vulnerable children, as the beneficiary for our project."
