Just an email to say thank you so much for the experience
last Wednesday. The children and staff had an absolute ball. Paul was so
fantastic with the kids and ensured they were engaged and had a smile on their
faces throughout the whole experience. What a fantastic cultural experience.
I attended the City of Joondalup Platinum Adventures
African Drumming Workshop on 12 September. Paul, you could not have
known what a difference the morning's workshop made to me. I really
enjoyed your wonderful stories of your country of birth, the rhythms, the songs
and the ingenious instruments.
The laughter you generated in the workshop, your energy and
obvious enjoyment of teaching and playing were a delight.
I am not given to spontaneously hugging people I barely know
(I hope you will forgive me for doing so), but I could not resist letting you
know how much you fed my soul. Drumming and singing were enormous fun and
I shall seize any opportunity in the future to do some more. Perhaps
Thank you so much.
Thank you to Paul! We all really enjoyed the drumming
activity and received great feedback from all!
Good morning, I just had to
send an email to say a huge Thank You for Saturday. Paul and the Akwaaba
drumming was nothing short or fantastic and the most talked about activity of
the morning. You were just fantastic with engaging those who wanted to have a
go and that is exactly what we wanted.
I am writing to say thank you for the wonderful interactive
workshop Akwaaba presented to the Perth College Junior School for our Creative
Arts Day this year. All the girls, from
Kindy to year 6, thoroughly enjoyed the percussion and singing session and learnt
a lot about African music in the process.
The passion you have for your music and the joy you take in sharing it
with others was a delight to behold! I think the final part of the session,
when all 280 girls spontaneously jumped to the feet and started dancing, was a
clear endorsement of the terrific experience you created for us. The staff all felt that Akwaaba truly
captured the spirit of our Creative Arts day – a time to celebrate the Arts and
release the creativity, imagination and joy within each of us.
just wanted to thank you again for your workshop. You lifted the spirits and
energy of our residents and staff who all thoroughly enjoyed themselves singing
your songs and playing your drums. They all commented on your “happy
clothes” and beautiful smile which just added to the memorable experience.
