MORE than 20 artistes have reg­is­tered to be part of the se­cond Bu­l­awayo Jam Ses­sion — an event in­tro­duced in the city to pro­mote up-and-com­ing artistes.

Those se­lected will per­form at the Ce­cil Ho­tel con­fer­ence hall on Wed­nes­day. The first jam ses­sion was held last month at the same venue and at­tracted a size­able crowd.

Event or­gan­iser, Nku­l­uleko Nkala said they could only ac­com­mo­date a few artistes in or­der to make the ses­sion in­ter­est­ing.

Khuliyo and Donna C will host the event that will fea­ture 20-minute per­for­mances by Brenda, Gabs Fire, Cen­tre Party, Natasha K, J Garn­ert, Brintz, Cee Jay and Kwa­bat­sha Bat­shi.

Nkala said he was im­pressed by the over­whelm­ing re­sponse from artistes and the cor­po­rate world.

“It’s very in­ter­est­ing to note that many artistes want to par­tic­i­pate but unfortunately we can only take a limited num­ber,” said Nkala.

He said the cor­po­rate world was very sup­port­ive and on Wed­nes­day those at­tend­ing will win prizes.

Nkala said he was op­ti­mistic that the se­cond jam ses­sion would re­ceive a huge re­cep­tion.

“The first Jam Ses­sion was not well-pub­li­cised, but still man­aged to draw a good crowd. This time around, we’ve ad­ver­tised the event in good time and hope that more peo­ple and even artistes them­selves are go­ing to at­tend,” he said.

Nkala said they were con­sid­er­ing in­clud­ing com­edy on their pro­gramme as most co­me­di­ans from the city had shown in­ter­est.
