Teranga Comes to Baldwin
Teranga African Dance and Drum is being offered to some of our classrooms in March thanks to our Art Committee. These participatory workshops take students on a journey to West Africa through songs, dances and drumming as a means to engage the senses, to learn about cultural traditions and to build community. Students will learn about the traditions of West Africa and how they contrast with our current cultures. The students will learn about djun-djun (pronounced joon-joon), the generic name for a family of drums that originated in the ninth century Mali Empire among the Mandinka people. Thank you to Miriam Tendler for arranging this tremendous opportunity for our students.
