Getting into the West African drumming spirit at Ogden


All four of the fifth grade classes at Ogden Elementary School and students in the special education class who graduating this year took part in learning about West African culture through music during a five-day residency presented by MH Productions.

The program culminated in a West African percussion performance on May 6, which included some singing and movement, along with traditional percussion instruments such as a Djembe drum. Each class performed a different piece on the drums.
