Music

Around The World - India

In music we have been looking at music from India. This week we listened to some musical clips from Bollywood. The children then used the instruments to play a combination of notes (C D F G B C B G F D C) to play a rag. (A rag is a series of notes which Indian music uses to create the tune.).

The children used the instruments to add a drone. (A drone is simply one note played over and over in the background, which sounds a bit like someone humming a long held note.). To create the drone they played either notes D or B.

Adding a tal.

The children learnt how to add a tal to their music. (A tal simply plays a repeated rhythm.) Although simple, the rhythm they used had three different sounds. Each word represented a different sound played on the tabla/drum (dhin, na and tin).
