And what a time it was! On Saturday, March 22 Theo led us in a day-long workshop of music of Africa.

We started the day with an hour of continuous drumming, with Theo and his partner Namori- many participants had never done anything like it before, but came away energized and wanting more! Then Theo taught us songs from Ghana and other countries in Africa; we never quite believed we would learn five songs with drum accompaniment in a few short hours, but Theo’s way of repeating and slowing down until we got it helped us sing with confidence in short order.
