Hey! There’s another extremely important aspect of Jam-boree that I seem to have, inadvertently, missed. In fact, it is this aspect that sets it apart from what typical jam sessions are like in other places.

The essence of Jam-boree as envisaged by Mr. Ajay Mahajan is that it blends both entertainment and art. Entertainment because it features exciting acoustic covers of old favourites ranging from The Beatles to Eric Clapton. Art because Jam-boree is a platform for original music.

A significant slice of each session is devoted to showcasing original compositions. The young lady visitor from the US who first told me about the Jam-boree also performed some of her original material at the sessions. Later sessions featured another American man singing several of his self-composed pieces, and another young keyboardist, Tejesh, sharing his creations. And of course, Sanjo focuses predominantly on his own compositions, both in English and Hindi, accompanied by some dazzling, scintillating lead guitar played by Samir.

All this makes Jam-boree a great place to catch music that is original, creative and refreshingly different.
