Welcome to the 'Music from Around the World' Topic Team page.
We have had a great first session today, Friday 8th January. We found out about Samba music and watched some clips from the film 'Rio' and then compared them to actual clips from the Carnival in Rio de Janeiro. We could hear lots of percussion instruments in the music and some of us had a little dance along as we watched!
We made some shakers using everyday materials and decorated them like the people and floats are decorated at the carnival in Rio. Take a look at the photos below.
For our last session, we painted to music. We started off playing 'musical painting' where we painted while the music was playing and when it stopped we moved to the next picture.
We then worked on our own pieces of artwork, listening to the sounds in the music to inspire us to paint. Take a look below.
