Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s skills as a drummer were yet again on display on Sunday when he along with Tanzanian President John Pombe Joseph Magufuli played the traditional drums.
“New beats to the #IndiaAfrica rhythm! PM @narendramodi and President @MagufuliJP play the drum,” external affairs ministry spokesperson Vikas Swarup tweeted.
Both the leaders played the wooden drums after the Prime Minister was accorded a ceremonial welcome at the State House in Dar-es-Salaam.
65-year-old Modi was seen enjoying the drumming session with the Tanzanian President, who appeared to halt briefly but resumed the drumming again when he saw the Indian leader was in no mood to stop.
Modi first played the drums during a visit to Japan in September 2014 when he joined the Japanese percussionists to perform a ‘jugalbandi’ with them.
