Lagos - The Chief Executive Officer OF Gongbeat, a dance company, Isioma Williams, said on Monday that Nigerian music needed originality and local percussion instruments to make an impact worldwide.
"It is very vital for musicians and traditional dancers to sustain originality in their acts by using local drumming to beef up their music which will differentiate them,’’ he said.
Williams made the assertion in Lagos on the sidelines of a clinic he organised to teach musicians and traditional dancers how to beat various drums.
The clinic with the theme "My Music Notes” began on July 21 and will end on July 28 at the Artistes Village at the National Arts Theatre in Lagos.
"This will enable them to read musical notes and write their own music.It will further encourage the habit of documentation in the industry so that our creative works are preserved and not lost,” he said.
