A resident from Westridge tries to use music as a tool to keep youngsters off the street and out of trouble. Raglan Isaacs from the group, A More Excellent Way (Amew), says the group aims to musically train youngsters in the area. Isaacs says the name Amew was chosen because whatever they do, is more excellent and they do it to the best of their ability. “Whatever we do as a community, we do under that name,” he says. The group started producing gospel music about six years ago and the members from Westridge and Blackheath represent different churches. Isaacs says the group incorporates youngsters in their music as well and they aim to scout for any talent within the community. “We want to give the youngsters a platform where they can showcase their talents and develop their skills,” says Isaacs. “We have an interchurch project where we try to develop talent. This is our way of keeping youngsters off the street and out of trouble,” he says. He says the group wants to train the youngsters, keep them busy and develop their skills. “We are very excited about doing this.”Amew will be releasing two new singles at their launch on Saturday 28 September at the auditorium in Claremont at 18:00. V Tickets are available for R50 (entrance only) and R60 (entrance and a single).
