Beat this!

Today we've purchased 5 new Djembes to be shipped up to Alice Springs for our upcoming trip to Yirara College this August. Did you know these drums come all the way from Ghana in West Africa? That's where the best tone woods are found. The get skinned with real animal hide here in Australia and end up in the hands of our awesome young students, ready to master some new rhythms and beats. Its a simple acoustic instrument, but its been consistently a favourite with students in remote areas, especially musical games like 'Simon Says' and 'Pass The Beat' - a musical form of chinese whispers. We can't wait to be doing drum circles with the kids up in Alice Springs and to share with you all of our stories. 

Thanks for your support this year,
