KOTA KINABALU: KK Jazz Festival is a charity festival with proceeds earned are used to fund charity programmes. The annual jazz extravaganza is jointly organized by the Rotary Club of Kota Kinabalu (RCKK) and the Society of Performing Arts Kota Kinabalu, Sabah (SPArKS).

The monies collected will go to deserving community projects of RCKK and for the development of performing arts in Sabah through SPArKS, said organising chairman of the festival, Rtn. Jack Ong.

“Some of the RCKK community projects funded by the Jazz Festival include the provision of clean water projects, literacy programs, avoidable blindness campaign to detect eyes diseases and free medical services for rural communities.

“We also focus on environment protection programs and building of boarding homes for rural children so they do not have to walk for two hours to school daily,” he told a press conference here yesterday.

Meanwhile, co-Chairman of the festival and SPArKS President, Roger Wang said this year’s performers’ line-up consists of three international bands and musicians, together with nine award-winning Malaysian talents.

“We gather all this combination of the best lines-up for this year’s festival,” he said singling out Butod Project and Cumulus who were discovered through talent search.

“We also have many Sabah bands and to have a festival like this, we can show the local talents to our people. While enjoying the festival, the audience will do their part in helping charity,” he said.

Other performers are Dasha Logan, Sada Borneo, Shun Ng & The Shunettes, Rozella, Rainbow Children, Nafas, Kangkung Belacan, Gordon Chin, Good Messenger, Dominants 5th of Borneo, and Borneo Big Band. It is the 11th year the festival is staged. The main sponsors are Yayasan Sime Darby and Sabah Tourism.
