Moves to revive jazz in Nigeria

Several concerts were held over the weekend in Nigeria's main city, Lagos.

The concerts were aimed at helping Africa's most populous country to revive its jazz industry.

Nigeria has produced some of Africa's best jazz musicians in the past.

Grammy award-winning saxophonist Kirk Whalum told the BBC that US and Nigerian music influence each other to make today's jazz music.
