Leo's Dad, Jeffrey Sieben shared his knowledge of drumming with us on Friday. He brought several drums from different continents which the kids were able to play. There was djembe drum which is a skin-covered goblet-shaped drum played with bare hands, originally from West Africa. Quite popular was a cajón drum(which means “crate" or "box with a hole in it") and is a box-shaped percussion instrument originally from Perú. There was also a Snare Drum which originates from Europe, traditionally this drum was often used to communicate orders to soldiers. Not to forget Asia we had a Cymbal drum from China. This was a memorable and energetic experience for our children (proof below:).
