PROJECT TO BE LAUNCHED AT FRANCISTOWN’S SUPA NGWAO MUSEUM ON SUNDAY AT 10AM
If you have ever entertained the idea of playing drums, but didn’t know how – now is your big chance. Local musician and master drummer Phillip Mhlanga is launching a project to form a Drummers Club, intended for the Francistown youth. The BDF officer has been the army bands main drummer for the last 12 years and is a popular figure at their annual charity concerts. Club members will be taught basic music theory and be given introductory lessons on how to play the drums.
He sees the scheme as a youth empowerment project aimed at adding to the numbers of drummers in the country as well as providing recreational facilities for school going and out of school youth. He started the popular Drummers Anonymous Club, a similar scheme during his time in Gaborone, and now based again in Francistown he wants to continue the concept here.
Poet and musician Kalayakgosi Kalayakgosi, who will also help groom club members, will join Phillip in the project intended to bring development to the Francistown community. Anyone interested should be at the Supa Ngawo museum on Sunday at 10 am to register. Phillip can be contacted on 71484042 for further information.
