“Mama Lama”: A Grade 4 Music Collaboration!

After learning this song during their Zoom music class, grade 4 musicians (and some teachers/principals!) submitted videos for this project. The song is performed in a rondo form (ABACA), with improvised body percussion performed in question/answer style in the B and C sections. Great job, musicians!

On October 31st, Thailand will celebrate Loy Krathong! The evening of Loy Krathong is one of the most picturesque festivals in Bangkok. It’s when people gather around lakes, rivers and canals to pay respects to the goddess of water by releasing beautiful lotus-shaped rafts, decorated with candles, incense and flowers onto the water.
