Eighteen-year-old Aysha Ndiaye, pictured, took up music and singing at school only two years ago.

She wowed youth mentorship judges from the Mullum Music Festival, and will now be mentored by Shelly Brown, pictured.

To Shelley’s right is youth mentorship organiser Tom Whitaker. Tom said, ‘The quality was high and there were lots of applications by diverse acts.

The age range was 7 – 21 with entries coming from as far afield as Sydney and the Sunshine Coast.’ Young people will be again taking to the stage as part of the Mullum Music Festival, held November 15 – 18. 


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
