Kindergarteners attend African Drum Ensemble

The TLC Kindergarten class took a trip to the Macalester College in St Paul.  While there, they attended a performance of the African Drum Ensemble.  The program showcased many different instruments including,   drums (made from dried gourds of various shapes and sizes–), xylophones, flutes and more.  One of the drums was 6 feet tall! The class also had the opportunity to see a few different ceremonial dances from the country of Ghana, including a funeral dance, and a coming of age dance.  A few of our kindergarteners even got to  join the performers on stage to learn a game played by children in Ghana.  What a great show!  To see a video of the Macalster College African Drum Ensemble, please visit our facebook page.
