Have a go at learning this song from Africa. It's called Che Che Koolay and it is one that we often learn in school. It is good fun to play along with instruments. You could have a go at making your own instruments with things you can find at home. Maybe you could make a maraca using a plastic bottle filled with rice or lentils. Lots of things can be used like a drum to tap out a beat. It is a song with an echo - one person sings and another repeats. Get someone to join in with you and have fun!

 

Learn some African dance moves and make it part of your daily exercise! There are lots of clips available on Youtube for you to enjoy. This is a good one for beginners. Why don't you get your family involved as well!
