Competition for fresh talent

South Africa’s top young jazz-inspired bands can now compete for a chance to shine at the Cape Town International Jazz Festival (CTIJF) stage.

espAfrika, producers of the prestigious festival have launched a brand new initiative called #espYoungLegends which will see them scour the country in search of fresh talent.

This annual competition will join espAfrika’s training and development commitment to growing a sustainable and professional entertainment sector and was developed to open the CTIJF stage to an even wider group of undiscovered bands.

The competition is open to bands made up of two to six members. The criteria for #espYoungLegends include quality and strength of performance, quality of musicianship and star potential. Entries will be narrowed down to a Top 20 by a panel of submission judges, before a public voting process on the espAfrika website for a guaranteed spot in the top five. A panel of judges will then choose the winner.

Visit www.espafrika.com/espyounglegends before Monday 21 December to apply. The top 20 contestants will be announced in February.
