Description DM2005020702:SAED:SOCIAL:MUSIC:PERSONALITY:SEP1957 - Banana Boy Blues! - Then there was Gambi George, certainly one of top drummersof all races in the Union. Ten years ago a Johannesburg music teacher embarked on an experiment to find out how musical or unmusical Indian Music students were. He was primarily interested in producing Indian jazzmen because he had an argument with other musicians who said that only Africans and Coloureds make good jazzmen. He had been told that Indians had a poor sense of Western rhythms and hardly a good ear for the western melody and harmony. (Photograph by Drum Photograph BAHA)
