FOL­LOW­ING the suc­cess­ful host­ing of the Jam Ses­sion in Harare last month, Bulawayo mu­sic fans will to­mor­row have a taste of what hap­pened in the cap­i­tal.

The in­au­gu­ral Bulawayo musical event meant to pro­mote up-and-coming artistes as well as those with fad­ing ca­reers, will be held at Ce­cil Ho­tel to­mor­row with Wil­lis Wataffi, San­dra Nde­bele, Jeys Mara­bini, Khuliyo, Mzoe 7, Lee­knotic, Thabbz, Hwabaraty, Gu­luva 7, Lady T and Donna N lead­ing the pack.

Khuliyo, one of the or­gan­is­ers of the event said: “We went to Harare last month and learnt a lot dur­ing the Jam Ses­sion. Our mu­sic needs a boost and this is an op­por­tu­nity for lo­cal fans to be ex­posed to our work. I’m con­fi­dent that the Jam Ses­sion will boost our ca­reers.”

He said the show which kicks off at 6PM would be a free event.

“It’s an open se­cret that Bulawayo au­di­ences aren’t re­cep­tive to lo­cal acts so we thought by mak­ing it a free show, they’d come in their num­bers.

“We also want fel­low artistes to come and ap­pre­ci­ate what we’re do­ing,” said Khuliyo.

Artistes who have not been in­cluded on the first line-up are be­ing in­vited to reg­is­ter for the sec­ond edi­tion of the Bulawayo jam ses­sion to­mor­row dur­ing the in­au­gu­ral event.

He said their plan was, like their Harare coun­ter­parts, to make the Jam Ses­sion a monthly event.

“Ide­ally we want the Jam Ses­sion to be held ev­ery sec­ond Wed­nes­day of the month.”

Next month, or­gan­is­ers plan to re­cip­ro­cate by host­ing Harare artistes in the city. In Harare, Bulawayo artistes had a warm re­cep­tion as mu­sic lovers there seemed to en­joy their mu­sic, judg­ing by the crowd’s re­sponse when they per­formed at the Jam Ses­sion which had been dubbed “Bulawayo meets Harare”.
