The Groove Warehouse Excursion

  1. The Groove Warehouse Excursion

    On the 4th of April, the year 9/10 music class went on an excursion to the Groove Warehouse where the professional percussionist, Garry France, welcomed us to the world of African drumming. He taught us all about the djembe drums which we played and the clave rhythm which is recognised in every genre. He also talked about the origin of African music and that it is from the Western Coast of Africa where the African Slave trade occurred. Our music class is very fortunate to have this excursion to the Groove Warehouse as Garry France taught us a lot about African music and we are very grateful for this trip.  by Theo Tran
