Mark taught all the 1st and 2nd graders to play two different instruments from Ghana during our workshop. Both are popular with children there. The kashaka was the most difficult - it is made from two small round gourds connected by a string, and is played by swinging the gourds around one hand to clack them together. The other was a hand drum, and it was more familiar and much easier to do.
