‚ÄčStudents in Prep to Year 6 are invited to attend a performance by a group called 'Salaka'.  The show is highly interactive, a hands-on, culturally rich, informative, professional presentation by authentic visiting arts from Ghana, West Africa.  Bringing hundreds of drums to our school so that every student will learn and play an African rhythm, Salaka will transform our students into a percussion ensemble led by their Master Drummers and Dancers from Africa.

The students will also learn a traditional African song to accompany the drumming rhythm, and experience African dancing.  As well as being very involved, the students will learn about African instruments, hear stories of African children growing up on the villages and witness traditional African dances as they are performed in Ghana.  It will also be an ideal introduction to the world of percussion and forms a basis for students in Years 3-4 to express interest in joining the Instrumental Music Program in 2018. 

When:  Thursday 20th July

Where:  Tullawong SS Hall

Cost:  $6.50 (payment due Wednesday 19th July)

Permission notes available at the school office.
