Pupils at Daventry's Welton CE Academy take part in samba workshop

Pupils at Daventry’s Welton CE Academy, part of the David Ross Education Trust, recently welcomed the Northamptonshire Music Service to deliver a samba music workshop.

As part of the workshop, pupils enjoyed learning samba rhythms and playing different samba batucada instruments, whilst creating their own samba performance.

Following the session, pupils shared their learning with parents as they performed as a batucada band.
