Music Lesson Rhythmic accompaniments - 12th November

Rhythmic accompaniments


Today in our music lesson we listened to ostinato rhythm patterns in the accompaniment of four songs.

Freedom - A traditional Caribbean song for all people throughout the world who are suffering through war or neglect.

Ki yo wah ji neh -  A Native American song that describes a hunter trying to paddle his canoe against the wind.

Sambalele - A Brazilian song describing a mischievous monkey who has a sore head after feeding on stolen food!

Did the rum do? - An Irish folk song. 

We compared these accompaniments and composed our own using percussion instruments. 

Well done class 5 your rhythm work is really improving and I am very proud of you all.  Mrs Turner
