Last night was the performance of the Destiny Africa Children's Choir at the Common Fence Music Hall in Portsmouth, RI. What an incredible experience! The children began their energetic day teaching area children how to play an African drum. Our students were very eager to learn drumming and spent a good part of the day testing out what they had learned on each of the drums which the children, both male and female, played.
At night, the choir gave an astonishing performance of highly energetic dancing, melodious singing, and powerful drumming, which reverberated throughout the room. The music was upbeat leading everyone to arise and partake of the dancing! The area students and a few others from the audience danced with the choir.
The children, who are all orphans living in Kampala, Uganda, were amazing. They seemed so wel adjusted that one could hardly believe the harsh conditions under which they were living before they arrived at the orphanages. Well- behaved children, they work hard and are being ttrained to be leaders in their country. They were very eager to help the American children with their drumming techniques.
