Jam Sessions come to Byo

BULAWAYO - Jam Sessions, which were introduced and popularised by the City Sports Bar in Harare, will be launched at Cecil Hotel tomorrow.

The move follows the participation of 10 Bulawayo musicians at the City Sport Bar a fortnight ago.

Nkululeko Nkala, who is among the organisers of the Bulawayo Jam Sessions, is confident that the initiative will bring a new dimension to Cecil Hotel which houses the Private Lounge Bulawayo which is popular for its female stripper shows.

“Wednesday is the beginning of our Jam Sessions that will run twice a month on Wednesdays. The idea is similar to the one held in Harare and I feel this will go a long way in showcasing the talent lying idle here in the city.

“We know Bulawayo is endowed with talent but most of the artistes don’t get the platforms to showcase what they are capable of doing,” said Nkala, who is better known as Khuliyo.

Nkala, who was part of the trip to Harare for the Monday Jam Sessions by Bulawayo artistes two weeks ago, said they found the experience very enlightening.

“Our trip to Harare was a memorable one and we really appreciated it very much. We also realised how people support local musicians. As a result, we decided to kick-start our own version of the initiative in partnership with Private Lounge and City Sports Bar proprietor Biggie Chinoperekwei,”  he said.

Tomorrow’s maiden Bulawayo Jam Sessions will include performances by Jeys Marabini, Sandra Ndebele, Guluva 7, Leeknotic, Thabbs, Mzoe 7, Lady Thwabary and Donna N.
