The challenges of running a music band that performs live has finally caught up with one of the most exciting local Rhumba groups.
Battalion 32 Musica is a 12 piece Rhumba live band based in Letlhakane.
The group’s audacious goal is to become a 32 piece live band made up of young exciting talent from the mining town and surrounding areas.
However the group has encountered financial challenges. As group leader Million Leiri puts it, they need instruments and attire to look the part.
“We survive by borrowing guitars for rehearsals and this not sustainable,” he said.
” If we can get music instruments we’ll be settled and job creation will be guaranteed for many young people,” said Leiri.
