International Jazz Day will be upon us again! For the third year running, arts organisation We Love Jazz SG or WLJSG has lined up a slew of activities held at Kult Kafe to celebrate the spirit of the sound.
First up, WLJSG will be bringing back What The Jazz?!?!, an open-call programme beckoning all lovers of jazz to display their passion through dialogue, music, dance or any medium. The slot will last three to five minutes and only 30 slots are available so be sure to sign up early.
Apart from the open call, two house bands will be performing for The Jam Session: JUNGLE JAM by Ayaschool X The Warriors and WLJ KULT JAZZ JAM. Both bands feature household jazz and electronica names including Aya Sekine, Tim De Cotta, Namie Rasman, Tete, to name just a few. In addition, anyone will be more than welcome to jam with the bands.
For those who fancy a little art, emergent trumpeter Cui YiHao will be donating an exclusive plastic trumpet for all attendees to paint on, which will be auctioned off at the end of the night. Sekine, who is the director of WLJSD, will be drawing on used totes bags for donations to the organisation. A film screening on live music in Singapore by Mitchell Vong will be screening at the event.
The celebration wouldn't be complete without food and drinks, which will be provided by Kult Kafe and other vendors.
