James Brown will perform at a concert to raise money for survivors of last year's (26DEC04) Indian Ocean tsunami next month (MAR05) in the Indonesian capital Jakarta.

The Godfather Of Funk is joined on the all-star bill by Incognito, ERIC BENET, George Duke, TANIA MARIA, LAURA FYGI and the Earth Wind And Fire EXPERIENCE at the three day event from 5-7 March.

Concert promoter PAUL DANKMEYER says, "For sure this is the largest jazz festival to be held in Indonesia."

Organisers will donate $1.60 (GBP0.84) to the tsunami relief effort from each ticket sold - they hope to sell 30,000 over the course of the three days.
