First, they told us a story about an African king who had played music for the animals on a special instrument. We really enjoyed the music and the costumes were fantastic!
They were amazing dancers, too!
After the story, the dancers changed into new costumes and drummed along with the band. The drumming was very fast - it must have taken years of practice for the musicians to learn.
At the end of the performance, Kikeyambay invited students and teachers up to the front to join them! Some students learned how to drum, play shakers along to the beat, and even dance. Some brave, brave teachers learned how to dance, too! (Thank-you to Brandon for taking photos of our dancing lessons!)
