Face Fridays (The Jams)

The founder of FACE, Zeejah Fazli, was among the pioneers of an underground movement of free-music expression in Islamabad called the Sweet Leaf City Jam – started in 2004 in which artists of various origins and nationalities converged to play music without an agenda in a public space. The greatest achievement of these events was the recognition and promotion of the underground talent of Islamabad, from which a lot of new talent gained its impetus.

Since its inception FACE has provided a platform for innovative jamming sessions connecting underground with mainstream and contemporary with traditional music. We still believe that collaborative jamming sessions are the best spaces for musicians to become inspired and to release their inhibitions. Join us every Friday for a live music session featuring any type of music – from folk and dhol percussion to electronic and contemporary; mainstream to underground; and well-rehearsed performances to free-jam sessions!
