Madosini to train musos

2016-09-01 06:00

After years in the industry with no tangible project of her own in over 60 years, Calabash Storytellers will host Madosini, a traditional instrumentalist from Langa.

Calabash said they have successfuly managed to secure some funding from Department of Arts and Culture(DAC) for Madosini to incubate 30 aspiring musicians over 3 months at the Lookouthill Tourism Centre in Khayelitsha.

At the DAC Living Legends launch in 2015, she made a heartfelt plea to Minister Nathi Mthethwa for assistance.

The project’s mandate is to promote Arts and Culture, skills transfer, audience development, Job Creation and sustainability.

Next Wednesday she will host a Masterclass at the centre. We need to share her story to secure more funding to realise her dream to set up an institution to teach, tour the country in its full breadth and get her a home too. She has been nominated by Dac as a UN Living Treasure for South Africa.
