Based on a traditional Kenyan Christmas carol, "Christmas Africana" lends a joyous and exotic change of pace to your concert. The use of African and traditional percussion instruments gives the piece its African flavor. With authentic, but easy rhythms, there are great opportunities for involving additional students in your percussion section. Energetic melodies and call-and-response patterns provide great tools for teaching blend and balance to the entire band. A really exciting and unique piece for your Christmas concert!
