Beyond Skin

On Friday 20th March 2015 our school was privileged to be offered a workshop with BEYOND SKIN, a cross cultural group of musicians who gave a very enjoyable workshop for year 8 pupils.A guitarist from Belfast Zoo – a long story. a bassist from Slovakia and drummers from India and Ghana provided an interactive session with everyone learning a little bit about the Djembe drumming technique for Africa and more importantly having a go. Everyone also had a chance to play and sing along with the performers. The energy of the performers was at times matched by the energy of the year 8 pupils. The focus of the workshop showing that we are all the same ‘beyond skin’.
