This half term, year 5 will be learning how to play the djembe- an African drum.
A djembe or jembe is a rope-tuned skin-covered goblet drum played with bare hands, originally from West Africa. According to the Bambara people in Mali, the name of the djembe comes from the saying "Anke djé, anke bé" which translates to "everyone gather together in peace" and defines the drum's purpose.
We will be learning a variety of songs and rhythms
ready for our performance next half term.
