Junior Jam is led by Kabantu – a quintet of award-winning musicians and music educators, known for their infectious rhythms and beautiful melodies from around the globe. They regularly lead workshops in primary schools around Greater Manchester and as a group they’ve performed at prestigious events including the BBC Proms.

Junior Jam gives every child (and parent!) the chance to sing, collaborate, learn a new instrument, build rhythmic skills and share new music together as a group, with a new and exciting theme each month.


Junior Jam is delivered in partnership with Manchester Central Library and supported by Youth Music as part of the Alliance for a Musically Inclusive England. The project is made possible by funding from the National Lottery via Arts Council England.
