We sound like this!
In August 2013 the group will be visiting three schools in Durban townships. In Mayville High we will be doing a joint performance - Roots Alive will be delivering a ceilidh, and Mayville High dancers and singers will be performing. In Thandimfundo Primary school we will be doing a singing project, using songs from South Africa and England. This will culminate in a recording to share with Thandimfundo's twin school, Featherbank Primary. In Beacon Ridge Primary school Roots Alive will be doing an instrumental project, giving the children ukeleles, whistles and djembes to play South African and British music.
We hope that Roots Alive will be able to continue helping the Beacon Ridge children to learn the instruments after returning to the UK, via the internet. We need money to buy equipment for recording, the instruments themselves, to pay for the hire of a recording studio for Thandimfundo, and amplification for the ceilidh in Mayville High.
