This week was the first week of our music and peace project on awarenet which will lead to the Peace Concert on Peace Day in September 2013. Terri-Lynn Penney, the awarenet coordinator in Grahamstown, accepted the participation of 5 schools, namely CM Vellem Higher Primary School, Good Shepherd Primary School, Mary Waters High School, Nathaniel Nyaluza Public Seconday School and Ntaba Maria Primary School.
In each school, a group of learners from grade 8, 9, 10 or grade 11 were selected from a large number of interested learners. This week, they will be introduced to the idea and background of HipHop music by Zukani Budaza, a professional musician and Lunga Heleni, a professional sound engineer. We will tell you more in our next blog.
In the mean time, please support our project on betterplace! Even just a few Euros will help! Thank you.
