A couple of weeks ago we started learning about Afro-Beat w/ Mr. Daniel. We have been doing our music lessons with the Wandering Hamsters, which works out much better for focusing (when one of our peers is being distracting, it affects everybody less when there are more of us).
Checking our pulses and feeling the rhythm of our hearts.
Tapping along to Mr. Daniel's rhythm.
Learning about the pioneer of Afro-Beat, Fela Kuti from Nigeria. We also learned about tape players!
Then we played percussion along with Fela Kuti on tape and danced around.
