Year 5 have enjoyed their first session of Djembe drums. Djembe rhythms come from Mali and Guinea in Africa. We’ve been discussing the pitch and dynamics of the music we have played today.

Year 5 are progressing in our Djembe drum skills. Today we have been playing ostinatos (repeating musical phrases) in small groups then layering the different sounds to create one rhythm.
