African Drumming at ISM

Over two busy days in October all of the Primary School and Class 7 students took part in some very lively African Drumming sessions with renowned percussionist Ayo Nelson-Homiah. Students explored a range of instrumental techniques, such as bass, tone and slap on the djembé (a skin covered drum originally from West Africa and played with bare hands). They composed a short rhythmic piece involving newly learnt techniques and a range of different rhythmic devices. The workshops were a great deal of fun and all students really enjoyed themselves.
