Artists are being trained on how to use various musical instruments in Abyei Administrative Area. The training began last week at Youth Center in Mulmul in Abyei Town.

The chairperson of Abyei Artists’ Union Aliei Deng says 13 students have been registered and vacancies are still open for new students. The artists are learning guitar, drums and other instruments.

Last week, a five-member committee was formed to supervise the Artist’s Union center, the instruments and the finance. Deng Monytoc Bar is the chairman of the center, Magany Chol Marin is the technical director. Last month, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) donated musical instruments to Abyei Artists’ Union as part of promoting peace in the community through music.
