The German embassy in Namibia announced that it will host Anke Helfrich and Adrian Mears in Namibia for a series of jazz concerts.

Helfrich is a jazz pianist and composer who divided her life between Germany and Namibia, while Mears hails from Australia and is a jazz educator, composer, didgeridoo player and trombonist. He currently lives in Germany.

Entry to the concerts are free and due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, only 100 people will be allowed.

The duo will perform at Haus der Jugend on Saturday, 18 September.

The German Embassy says they are excited to host the concerts after the events were initially cancelled, due to the pandemic.

“We are happy that the Covid-19 situation in Namibia has improved so much that we can now host this concert. We thank all the Namibian healthcare personnel who have been working tirelessly to achieve this during the recent months.”

Swakopmunders can also look forward to another event by the German Embassy in October.

Currently, plans for a photo exhibition in Swakopmund by German photographer Julia Runge, are under way.
