The Music Festival

| 1 Comment

On Thursday we went to the Music Festival in Midyell. There was Samba music and Beat boxing. A man taught us Samba music, it comes from Brazil. The instruments we used were tambourines, big drums, small drums, shakers, spring board, chimes and little egg shakers. We played a song alltogether which they play at the yearly Brazilian Festival. There was different parts for every instrument. Everybody thought different instruments were difficult to play.

Hobbit taght us how to Beat box. Beat boxing is percussion with mouth and throat. He beat boxed his own song at the beginning of the lesson and he was really good. He could make a sound like an ambulance siren and a boat horn. He said bogus and then everyone looked shocked but he said it to teach us how to say something beat boxers use in songs. The basic sounds are B K T. We also made up our own tunes in a group of five. Btbbtb btbt that was the basic rhythm of the girls song.

  1. Sounds as if the music festival was great fun. It’ll be one of the last things Frances organises before she leaves so I’m glad you enjoyed it 🙂
