Jabba Jabba Jembe :)

On Tuesday, we had a percussion workshop. At 9:15 we went down to the music room which was filled with drums of all shapes and sizes.
     Dave was in the music room and he soon got us laughing. He told us that the drums we were using are NOT BONGOS! They are called Jembes. We started off learning what different sounds could be made with the drum and hw showed us how to shape our hands.
    Not before long we were drumming away and it sounded really good. It seemed to come naturally to most of our class. Some girls wore funny and unusual hats and we all got a chance to do different rhythms and play the different instruments.
   The time flew and before we knew it, it was 12:15 and time to go back to class. With our hands red, sore and raw we went back to class very happy and feeling connected to native african tribes.
