About

Milégé Afro Jazz Band has grown steadily, rising from a band which plays at family gatherings to an assemblage of professional and multi skilled youths, now sharing the stage with celebrated musicians and playing at corporate events. Our music is a fusion of classical jazz and traditional African sounds, blended into modern and unique master pieces that signify the place of contemporary Africa in a global village.
We derive our name, “Milégé” from the Luo word for a rattle-like bell worn around the ankle during traditional dances that herald the arrival of the chief. The name Milégé was also chosen to emphasize to the band’s fusion of classical jazz music and traditional African folklore.The originality of sound and composition of this youthful and vivacious band is limitless; hence Milégé Afro Jazz Band brings a new meaning to jazz by incorporating African culture and tunes.
