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 dancing, too!
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.
I 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.
