Day 337 - African Drums and Dance

On Friday we had a YAK activity for the students. Students who managed to speak English and get less than 7 YAK tickets were invited to attend the activity. In the morning each group of younger students learned a traditional African song and dance. The older students also learned a song BUT they got to play it on the drums. In the afternoon the groups presented what they had learned to the other students and staff. It was a great learning experience and the kids had a wonderful time. It was fun to watch their faces as they were playing, dancing and listening. The photo above captures one of the instructors teaching my students the rhythm they needed to play.

Great composition (the photo not the music - you didn't include any - it would have been fun to hear what they did).
