TO help celebrate Black History Month, pupils at Stalham Junior School welcomed Caw Secka, a native Gambian, and David Smith, a Native Norfolk lad, both now living in London. The two drumming musicians and their colleagues combine jazz and Gambian sabar styles to create a unique blend of music. The two members of the group Outhouse Ruhabi taught members of the Year Three classes techniques and rhythms for a whole afternoon. The amazing sounds echoed around the sports hall and adults and children were enthralled and captivated by the tales and music they heard and helped create. The two men and the rest of their company will be performing a community concert at St Mary's Church Happisburgh on Saturday, October 17 at 7.30pm. Tickets from the Happing Shop on Stalham High Street.
