IN BRIEF: A Unique Surprise

Local singer/songwriter Unique, aka Natasha Brown, has found a new platform to showcase local musicians and lyricists. Under the banner Let’s Not Pretend, Unique has organised unannounced jam sessions along various bus routes across the city.

“We came up with the idea after coming back from playing at The Yardbird in town,” says Unique, “I just started playing, someone else started singing. Before we knew it the whole top floor of the bus was watching or joining in.”

Unique has already held Let’s Not Pretend jam sessions to support Soweto Kinch’s Flyover Show III in May and, most recently, in conjunction with COME:Unity Arts.
