As cities all over the world re-open their doors, the months spent in lockdown in order to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus will not be forgotten easily. The film, theatre and music fraternities among the others, were forced to take a sabbatical resulting in an increased crop of innovative content from all around the world. From renditions to covers to new tracks, music proved to be a constant companion during these difficult times& continues to do so. This World Music Day, Zing curates a special segment ‘Zing Fan Jam’ giving fans a chance to jam along with their favourite artists – Aakanksha Sharma, Stebin Ben, Yasser Desai, Jyotica Tangri and Shivangi Bhayana.
With the new norm of virtual interactions trending, Zing will give fans this amazing opportunity to jam with the artists and come on TV with them. The Channel will select 15 super lucky who will get a chance to jam along with their favourite artist.
