The Te Rangi Diaries - a Big Hit

What is it about people and percussion?

People love hitting things.

Children of all ages had the opportunity to make and play drums at the Te Rangi Festival.

I took a trailer load of materials to the festival and we still ran out.

Its a simple process - cardboard cores from paper rolls, Oxford nylon for the skin, muscles to stretch it, and staples to hold it in place.

Decorate with painted designs.

It's easier when you collaborate.

And there you have a drum.

Instructions to kids: Play it outside your parent's tent early in the morning - then run!!
