Iko Iko Band
We have learned a new song and we taught it to the rest of the school at assembly this morning! It’s from New Orleans and has a Funky New Orleans rhythm. It is about the different Indian tribes in New Orleans who compete to steal each others flags. They do this every year during Mardi Gras, a big festival.
The kids who are playing the song are funky kids! We are learning to use drums with different rhythm patterns playing against each other, coordinating the guitar players and we even have some kids on the spoons.
We are learning some more songs so that we can visit the library and some other local places to share our love of music.
Come and join us, learn some new tunes and get into the groove!
