Music in the Woods
First we sat in a circle and I drummed a rhythm which pupils copied. Then I played a Scottish song on my penny whistle while they drummed along, before thinking about the music of Aborigines, Amazonian Indians, Maasai (voices only) and Native Americans.
With groups spread through the woods it sounded like a global tribal festival with amazing and sometimes beautiful sounds echoing through the trees and glimpses of people dancing and the sounds of laughter and enjoyment.
We finish with a performance from each group - I loved this morning....
