USAFE, BDF Bands inspire students in Botswana

Lance Cpl. Omphile, Botswana Defence Force Band drummer, sets up his equipment at the Kachikau Primary School while students watch in Kachikau, Botswana on May 17, 2017. While supporting the 2017 African Air Chiefs Symposium, the U.S. Air Forces in Europe “Ambassadors Combo” performance band hosted military-to-military band workshops with the BDF Band that focused on improvisation, rehearsal techniques, and synchronization. The bands learned to play two songs together and played for four primary and secondary schools in northern Botswana. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Krystal Ardrey)
