Join us via live stream on World Music Day!

Grab whatever drums you can and join us via YouTube live stream as we lead a workshop with 100 children from the UK's most multicultural town! 

Music Day is a connected set of free public events which takes place each year on the 21st June, our midsummer. Each year there are events in over 120 countries and 700 cities around the world, not including France where there were too many events to count! The event is also known as Fête de la Musique (or Make Music Day and sometimes as World Music Day) and originated in France in 1982. Since then the idea has spread across the globe with each event holding to the same simple set of principles: that the day is held on the mid-summer solstice and that all concerts and events are free and accessible to the public.

We'll be leading an Afro-samba workshop with children in Slough, the UK's most multicultural town from 2pm-2:50pm on Wednesday 21st June 2017 and would be delighted if you joined us via YouTube live stream with whatever drums you can lay your hands on!
