YEAR 3 pupils from an Enfield junior school went on a musical journey to Africa as part of a special project.

The young people from Raglan Junior School, in Raglan Road, spent the past five weeks practising the West African drums, called djembe, before putting on a show for parents on friends on Friday, February 18.

It was organised by music director Sam Ojokor with help from Inspireworks, who lent 30 of the percussion instrument so every child was able to participate.

Over a five-week period, the young people at the Bush Hill Park school were taught a piece of music in the traditional aural style of listening and repeating.
