Esp Young Legends is a unique online competition that takes place annually brought to you by espAfrika (Pty) Ltd and the Cape Town International Jazz Festival. After a fantastic debut year with winner Lana Crowster, and second annual winner VuDu, it’s time to begin the search for the next unsigned jazz-inspired band to perform at #CTIJF2018! The goal is to find an outstanding, talented band of 2 – 6 members. The winner will perform at #CTIJF2018. They are looking for undiscovered gems with raw talent and the full package to join the line-up and rub shoulders with musical heavyweights.
We spoke to the espYoungLegends 2018 winner Jarrad Ricketts and Chief Executive Officer of EspAfrika, Billy Domingo, at the announcement of the winner of this prestigious award.
