West African cultural troupe Salaka Ensemble visited Merriwa Primary School on June 29 for interactive drumming performances.

Music teacher Rose Prior-Longmuir said the Ghanaian artists had immersed the young students in their culture and rhythms during the �hands-on� performances.

She said the school recently received a donation of plastic drums and tape from Bunnings to create drums as well.

Salaka Ensemble also visited Somerly Primary School earlier last month.
