Mbira Jam: 2:00 6th Grade

The first videos of the 2013-2014 school year are of our 6th graders.  They are performing a piece called "Mbira Jam" from the collection, Hot Marimba,  by Walt Hampton  I am very proud of the way they all worked together to make this piece happen!

Here is the 1:00 6th Grade music class playing "Mbira Jam" from the collection, Hot Marimba by Walt Hampton. I think we need more Bass Xylophones!
