Ghana Beat My Drum

Tuesday 22nd November, 2016

Get your students up and dancing as others beat out

their own, newly learnt, African rhythms.

Ghana Beat My Drum incorporates audience participation, singing, dancing and drumming to leave audiences feeling exhilarated and inspired as well as enlightened in the ways and

culture of Africa and more particularly Ghana.

Jonas teaches students words from the local languages, Ga Tui Mzema and Effutu and with their newly learnt words Jonas gets the entire audience participating in traditional call and response songs.

Students learn how many traditional African instruments are made from easy to find natural resources.

Add to all this Jonas’ wide smile and infectious laugh and what you get is a truly me morable,lively and uplifting, feel good show.

Jonas Tandoh was born in Ghana and has been a full time musician since the age of seventeen.

He has played in numerous bands and toured across Australia supporting bands such as Osibisa and Ziggy Marley and has still found time to tour to schools Australia wide for the past twenty-two years.
