PETALING JAYA: The KL International Jazz Festival, which was scheduled for April 27-30 at Universiti Malaya's Dewan Tunku Canselor and Experimental Theatre, has been postponed.
The four-day event, which was to have featured jazz heavyweights like guitarists Lee Ritenour and Chuck Loeb, vocalist Keiko Matsui and keyboardist Jeremy Monteiro, among others, will now be held on Sept 14 and 15.
"With the impending general election, ground speculation is that polling day will be on April 27, so that's why we've postponed the festival," said Rodin Kumar, managing director of the festival.
Unesco's International Jazz Day, which falls on April 30, will go on as scheduled. The event at Dewan Tunku Canselor, will feature a mix of foreign and local acts, including David Helbock, French Sumo, Nicole Henry Rodger Biwandu Quartet and Simone.
