Call and response song allows quick student engagement with large numbers.
Students will learn a traditional song, including its translation and context. It can include rounds or poly rhythms and it perfect to perform to an audience.
Call and Response
A really quick way to get large groups actively involved. The song leader sings a song to which the class responds.
We rarely run singing as a stand alone workshop. It dovetails perfectly with drum, dance and story telling.
Here is some video from a session run at a primary school, here children are showing their parents what they have learnt in an hours session. All of our activities are fully accessible and adaptable equipment is available. Makaton signs can be used to support the song and we are more than happy to work to meet your learning objectives.
All our school workshops aim to introduce positive views of Africa and challenge stereotypes. Activities are unifying, adapting to the differing abilities of those within the group.
