Percussion and World Music Instruments
A whole host of different instruments are used for our world music sessions, including drums, fruit shakers, tambourines, maracas, cowbells, sound shapes, and a variety of unusual fun instruments such as didgeridoos, triangles, recorders, washboards, kazoos, harmonicas, sound effects etc…
Depending on how long the session is the delegates are divided into 3, 4 or 5 groups and each assigned to a collection of musical instruments that have been distributed around the perimeter of the room. After a brief instruction on how to play the instruments the participants play a piece accompanied by Mark Walker and his drummers, who provide a strong rhythm to latch on to.
During the course of a session the delegates move around the room so that everyone has a turn on all the different groups of instruments. Using a variety of techniques, including call and response, changes in dynamic and tempo, and world music rhythms, participants enjoy a unique and fun experience, creating an energising and impressive sound in harmony.
