The fire that keeps Kenneth Janson going

MUSIC, to musician and singer Kenneth Janson, is a little fire in his life that keeps him going.

And rubbing shoulders with legendary musicians has always been an exciting and unforgettable memory for him. Janson's love for music started in the early 1960s and at 17, he realised it was going to be a big part of his life.

The president of the Golden Dragon Music and Night Club, Janson said he had been in the music scene for sometime and it really started when he was still a medical student.

"I was very lucky to have stumbled on to the likes of Tom Mawi and to rub shoulders with the other music legends at a young age," he said.

"It was a great opportunity for me and they were influential in what I did in the music industry.

"The fact that I was able to play in the club was really great, especially in an era where music was slowly being appreciated in the country.

"I love to listen to live music that are played by legendary musicians and they have been my inspiration all of these years."

He said playing alongside older musicians was an accomplishment for him.

"I play a little bit of everything and I respect musicians who know how to use different musical instruments.

"I am pretty neutral when it comes to the type of music I am into and if there is something that touches my soul, that would be soul music."

He said it was great getting young people to be part of this year's All Back Home music event because they were the future of the music industry, "so we need to look into their raw talents".
