Mentoring the youth is a sure way of nation building. What the mentees get out of this is confidence, encouragement, advice and for sure, hands on experience. The success of the Artscape Youth Jazz Festival 2006 is truly evident of this.
A big thank you for this years mentors: Melanie Scholtz, Camillo Lombard, Kevin Gibson and Alvin Dyers.
The successful bands that were selected for this years festival are The Turfjamp Youth Jazz Band, The Levites, The Settlers High School Jazz Combo and Eccentric Sound Productions.
