Rhythm Works are a dynamic percussion duo who show students how to create visual images through music – with lizards, waterfalls, road trains, and carnivals. In this high energy show, students are introduced to a range of instruments from African djembes, marimbas, electronic loop machines, Boomwhackers, and wearable instruments made out of PVC pipe! Students are given the chance to perform on these instruments to create their own musical imagery, with opportunities to re-create the experience back in the home or classroom.
