Djembi Drumming!

Over the past 1-2 weeks P2/3 have been learning to play some ever so unusual instruments. These instruments are African Djembe drums and are quite hard to play. The strings on the drums are to hold the animal skins in place on top of “One big piece of wood “ as Madeline (P3) described it. An “open” sound sounds like it’s bouncy and the “closed” sound sounds like one big boom. Miss Hughes has a song called “I play on my drum“. The different patterns on the drums show that the people who made them were from different families.
