Drum Jam Showdown, Jun. 21 2015 @ Petma Restaurant – Opp. KFC Kimathi Street

The fourth installment of the Drumjam Showdown is taking place at;

Date: Sunday, June 21 2015
Venue: PETMA Restaurant opposite KFC Kimathi Street
Time: from 2 pm
Tickets: KES 300

The Drumjam Showdown is a showcase of East Africa and Central Africa’s best sixteen drummers battling it out through ten rounds for a cash prize and the bragging rights of being the best drummer in East and Central Africa.

One of the official judges is Tetu Shani, who had this to say, “There is an artistic renaissance that is taking place in Kenya and Drumjam is one of the forums that is capturing this movement and providing a platform for musicians to feed off of one another’s creative energy and ultimately build up the regional music scene. I would encourage anyone with a love for healthy competition and music and come out and see the best that Kenya has to offer”

Every installment of the Drumjam showdown also features “mentors.” These are some of the most influencial musicians in the region who offer advice and a short workshop detailing their unique approach to their instrument. This installment’s mentors features some of the best percussionists in the country like Kasiva, Tetu Shani, Mobutu, and Gachago.

In regard to the mentorship program, Tetu Shani had this to say, “In the past there has been a lack of active mentorship from seasoned musicians to those who are rising through the ranks. The idea to have workshops by musicians was the brainchild of Thomas Olango’o and it creates an environment of active learning to make sure this musical generation is better equipped to handle the rigors of a music career.”
