4 THE AFRICAN EXPERIENCE

I was asked by the West Sussex Music Service to teach African drumming at the KS2 level in a number of schools in West Sussex but I managed to convince the management team that African music was not just about drumming but about drumming, dancing and singing and I was giving the freedom to come up with a curriculum to embody all these three aspects of African traditional music.

The music on this album are songs that I composed for this request.

1 Akwaaba (The song of greeting)


2 Fifi Drumming


3 Lala – Klogoh 1


4 Klogoh 2 – Klogoh 3

6 The Song Of Fun


7 Mama Papa Shabadam – Womba


8 Can I Scare You


9 African Freedom – Fire Angel


10 Ayiko


11 United As One
