AFRICAN RHYTHMS/DRUM CIRCLE

“The curious beauty of African music is that it uplifts even as it tells a sad tale. You may be poor, you may have only a ramshackle house, you may have lost your job, but that song gives you hope...” Nelson Mandela

We love to go on journeys of musical discovery at the Jazz Playground and today we’ll travel to the very soul of the genre, and indeed much of the popular music of the 20th Century as we invite you to join the band!

The Jazz Playground is a fun, interactive and educational live performance program inviting kids and adults of all ages to dance, sing and swing to the rhythms of jazz.

Presented by a live band, The Jazz Playground introduces the instruments and core concepts of jazz through familiar songs, sounds and rhythms. We explore history, language and diversity through an organic and participatory jazz performance featuring a rotating roster of guest teaching-artists. Each class will introduce a new instrument or style, and will take a trip to different places or times in history to explore how jazz shaped modern music in the 20th century onwards.

Above all, The Jazz Playground invites children of all ages to find their own creative space, develop their imagination and to collaborate through music.
