On Beat: Rain and Lowana had the opportunity to beat the drums with Jonas Tandoh of Ghana Beat My Drum.

Traditional African call and response songs echoed around MRIS last week when Ghana Beat My Drum visited the school.

Students enjoyed singing, dancing and drumming with Jonas Tandoh as well as learning about the culture of Africa, particularly Ghana.

Principal, Wendy Roediger said MRIS students learnt words from the local languages, Ga Tui Mzema and Effutu as well as about traditional African instruments that are made from natural resources.

“It was an inspiring and uplifting performance.” she said
