Music and Arts centre inaugurated in Pfutsero
Dimapur, Sept. 1 (EMN): Jubal Centre for Music and Arts was inaugurated in Pfutsero town on August 31. The launching programme was held at the TT Stadium, Pfutsero, with Theja Meru, advisor of Task Force for Music and Arts (TaFMA), as the guest speaker.
Speaking at the event, Theja Meru acknowledged God for the gift of music and honoured the director of the institute Khrowutso Letro for his children’s music ministry as well as for selflessly and relentlessly training talented kids from more than 10 villages in the district.
Meru also mentioned that the young Nagas are the chief minister Neiphiu Rio’s first love, adding his love and concern for the younger generation has led to formation of Task Force for Music and Arts (TaFMA). Highlighting on various activities of TaFMA such as the district-wise Open House, upcoming rock contest, Nagaland Choir Olympics etc, he encouraged the talented youth of the district to take advantage of those activities.
Meru also exhorted the students to assimilate MAD (Measure Attitude Dream) in their lives saying nothing can substitute hard work. He appreciated the Centre for incorporating traditional music instruments in its curriculum.
The centre is the brainchild of four young dynamic musicians, who came together sensing the need to have a proper centre for music and arts in their own district and provide opportunity to young talented music lovers to hone their skills at par excellence.
Khrowutso Letro, Centre Director, Wekhro-ü Thele, administrator, Wepu Puro, secretary, and Mesezü Venuh, co-ordinator, all have a background in music and two of them are members of the Nagaland Chamber Choir.
The centre is already affiliated to the London College of Music (LCM) and Rock School of Music. It currently offers courses in music theory, vocals, piano, guitar, drums, violin, and bobi/ tati, including dance.
The Centre was dedicated by Rev. Dr. Neingupe Chiero, senior pastor of Pfutsero Town Baptist Church. Dr. Diana Patton, SDO (C), Pfutsero, shared the greetings, while acclaimed trio from the region ‘Colored Keys’ also made special appearance with their original number.
