About the Jamboree Band
At the heart of our show Jamboree is the mythical travelling band who collect tunes and rhythms from those who rarely get listened to. The music was originally inspired by improvisations between professional musicians and young musicians, many of whom do not communicate through verbal language. Since then, it has gone on its own journey and is still evolving.
The Jamboree band is an ensemble of professional disabled and non-disabled musicians: vocalists Dunja Botic and Jovana Backovic, and instrumentalists Robyn Steward, Aaron Diaz and Daniel Gouly, with additional vocals from Griff Fender and Mark Foster. Lyrics are written by spoken word artist and disability activist, Miss Jacqui.
Some of the tracks are also featured in Jamboree: The Sensory Sessions. These interactive, creative sessions were made in collaboration with families during lockdown, and are designed to be enjoyed from home or school.
