What we do
Janzi Band is a standing figure in cultural development as fusion of music instruments from different
parts of the world. The instruments were the major aspects in creating the harmonic rhythms that
have been credited by famous music lovers and those who love African Jazz and contemporary
music. With an ideology “The world to speak the same language and that’s music”, Janzi has
managed to borrow ethnic ideas from different parts of the world hence producing master pieces
that do not segregate cultural backgrounds.
