YolanDa’s Band Jam is the critically acclaimed CBeebies children’s TV show presented by double MOBO award winning musician and broadcaster YolanDa Brown OBE. Dubbed “Jools Holland for kids”, YolanDa’s Band Jam encourages children to discover the joys of music through dancing, singing and playing! YolanDa’s Band Jam will expand children’s knowledge about music and instruments, attune children’s understanding of different musical sounds and styles, and inspire them to discover the wonders of music making.
Taking the series from the TV screen to the Live stage, YolanDa’s Band Jam have appeared on the main stage at Camp Bestival, Big Feastival and more as well as selling out the Royal Festival Hall three times as part of the Imagine Children’s Festival.
The show recently won “Best Children’s Programme (Pre-school)” at the Royal Television Society NW Awards and YolanDa Brown was nominated for a BAFTA in the Best Presenter Category.
Join YolanDa and her Bandjaminals for a fantastic show of music delights to be enjoyed by everyone from children to parents and even grandparents.
YolanDa Brown said: “The joy of music making and the feeling that music emits is one of the biggest gifts we have. To be able to share this with young children both in the studio, into their homes and now live on stage, is just mind blowing. The lovely messages I am sent on my socials of children playing along to the show with their musical instruments, in living rooms around the country, is just amazing and makes YolanDa’s Band Jam such a joy to make.”
