African & South American Drumming

African & South American Drumming

Music, rhythm and songs from Africa and Latin America

These drumming workshops are suitable for all ages as a great introduction to rhythm and basic percussion techniques. We provide djembes or samba percussion instruments for every child to join in. The children play traditional instruments and sing songs from West Africa or create a samba style.

They are aligned to targets within Key Stages One and Two of the Music National Curriculum.

African Drumming Workshop

Using traditional African djembe drums, children create sounds and music from the African continent. Every child immerses themselves in a different culture whilst experiencing a feeling of unity as part of a drum circle.

Samba Drumming Workshop

Bring a Latin flavour to your school and hear the children create music from South America. Using various percussion instruments, our facilitators help the children to create rhythms and sounds that will make you want to samba your way through the school day.
