The Southwark Percussion Festival brings together children from all over Southwark to showcase their talents in the Royal Festival Hall. Each of our Year 6 classes performed an African drumming piece on djembe and conga drums, alongside other schools. We were also taught harmony parts to sing alongside other schools, including secondary and sixth form children.
We have been preparing for the festival since October so it was wonderful to see all their efforts finally come together in an incredible performance! It was also really inspiring for our children to see the older children perform and imagine where they could be in a few years time.
Here is an audio clip to showcase our Year 6 children’s drumming. Enjoy!
