Musical guests visit Mott Middle College’s steel drum band

US – The Mott Middle College’s steel drum band had special visitors Tuesday.

Isango Ensemble, an internationally acclaimed South African theater company, worked with local young musicians.

The band members were very impressed with the student’s abilities.

Mandisi with the Isango Ensemble said, “The new songs they are doing, you know, the popular songs and putting them on these old instruments that’s very interesting cause that’s what music needs. It needs a step forward to the future, we can’t be held back by music of the past.”

The Isango Ensemble will be performing later this week at the University of Michigan’s Power Center in Ann Arbor as part of their U.S. tour.
