The rhythms and energy of West Africa echoed across the state when Musica Viva In Schools ensemble Teranga toured South Australia in 2017. Teranga transports audiences to a world of poetic, rhythmic storytelling.
As part of their tour, the group presented a concert at a culturally diverse, disadvantaged school in Adelaide’s northern suburbs. Following the performance, the principal shared a touching story about the transformative experience of a young student:
“Teranga were fantastic! Due to some learning difficulties, I was worried about how one young student would feel – he does not like loud noises. During the performance, he was mesmerised and TOTALLY engaged. The performers were outstanding with him. This child’s face was so beautiful; his energy and participation were such a joy to behold. He was out the front performing WITH them the whole performance … !” School Principal.
