Acts will create works of art from steel drums for SFOTE

Members of Grizzly Bear, The Knife and TV On The Radio are set to work with SFOTE on an upcoming fundraising event.

Called ‘7 Drums / 7 Artists’, the acts will make works of art from steel drums to honor the Laventille area of Trinidad and Tobago.

Taking part in the project are Grizzly Bear‘s Chris Taylor and Gang Gang Dance‘s Lizzi Bougatsos, who will team up on one drum, The Knife‘s Olof Dreijer and Mt. Sims, and TV On The Radio‘s Tunde Adebimpe and Kyp Malone, with the results set to be auctioned off to raise money for the non-profit organisation.

Other artists who are involved include Rita Ackermann, Olaf Breuning, Peter Doig and Chris Ofili.
