THE NCI JAM BACKGROUND:
The NCI Jam is scheduled to take place on Saturday, October 5th in Winnipeg and will feature 17 amateur Indigenous singers with a professional back-up band.
The talent show offers $10,000.00 in prize monies in four separate categories (1st, 2nd, 3rdand the Sidney Castel Memorial Award).
The NCI Jam has a long history (which began in 1987). It is broadcast live on NCI-FM and will be re-broadcast within three-weeks after its initial broadcast.
2019 is recognized as “the Year of Indigenous languages” which is an important part of NCI’s mandate.
Therefore we are seeking some Indigenous language from all 17 contestants…not to worry if you don’t speak your language or you are not a fluent speaker.
