A Djembe? Give Us the Chants!

My students need a djembe to accompany some African music we are programming this fall! It will be used for many seasons to come!

My Students

My students are in love with singing! I am the new chorus director at my school, and we need to have a successful year! I have the chance to grow the chorus program in both size and quality! Giving my students some small successes will help attract others to the program!

My school is very well-respected in the community and the entire state.

It has numerous clubs and activities for students. The chorus program is so popular that many students opt to take it after-school for credit, because they don't want to miss out! My hope is to double the chorus program in size within 2 years.

My Project

My students are going to be learning many styles of music for this coming year. We have a few different African songs we will be learning. Some are a cappella but with authentic African percussion! My singers need to have the chance to perform in the most authentic style possible!

The energetic vocal rhythms of African folk music like "Siyahamba" sound so much better when you have the African drums to go with it!

My students will be the ones learning both the vocals (in four part harmony) and the percussion parts to go with it! We will use this song in particular for our closing number at every concert this year. It will become our signature song!
