Vita Et Pax Preparatory School

African drumming

On Tuesday October 10th we were very fortunate to be joined by Atsu and his team at Venavidrums for a day of African Drumming representing drumming from Ghana. The fifty beautifully pictorial hand carved drums told traditional stories and displayed African symbols and the children all tried on African costumes to wear as they drummed. Each child was able to experience hands on playing, learning rhythms and ensemble pieces from Ghana and we will be looking at all the wonderful music we have learned in music class following this inspiring workshop. What a fantastic learning experience for us all!
