Cajon, kalimba, and rainstick: it’s really quite easy to create these instruments from Africa and South America. As long as you are willing to put in a little effort, you can create your own unique instruments and make music together with your fellow mates!

In the first session of the workshop, both adults and children will experience first-hand in making these instruments and decorating them. They will also explore the principles of sound production of the instruments during the process. In the second session, the children will play their instruments together in an ensemble. Join this workshop that blends rhythms with fun!
