Sessions are free and take place at the Children’s Library at Manchester Central Library. Places are limited (20 children per session) so sign up in advance to secure your spot.
Two 50-minute sessions will take place at 10am and 11am.
All instruments are provided.

Sat 27 Apr - Junk Percussion
Make music out of rubbish – dig deep into your recycling so we can make a junk percussion orchestra together!
(Participants should ideally bring one or two small things they could use as a basis for their instrument - a juice carton, empty cereal box or plastic bottle would be perfect!)
Sat 25 May - Ceilidh
Traditional Scottish dance led by Kabantu’s very own Edinburgh-born violinist Katie Foster. Dance the steps and learn the energetic music of this Scottish form of barn-dancing!
Sat 13 Jul - African Voices
Kabantu’s Abel Selaocoe will take you through children’s songs from his home nation of South Africa, known around the world for their incredible singing and harmonies.
