Capture the spirit of calypso, zydeco, bossa nova, gospel, jigs, jazz and more with this collection of global rhythm styles!

Each ensemble includes 3 to 4 rhythm parts for classroom percussion instruments, and one part is always the pulse, so even your youngest students can join in ! There are also body percussion parts to help learn the rhythms before the instruments are distributed, and when there aren't enough instruments to go around, optional Orff instrument parts and piano are also included for additional layers of tone color.

The enclosed CD offers 2 recorded tracks for each groove: an instructional track and a play-along track without the percussion instruments for the flexibility of adding any number of performers. PDFs of all the parts are on the enhanced CD. All parts are 4 - 8 measures, and once they are secure, the parts can be layered in one at a time, in different orders. You decide! Then add your new world groove accompaniments to different songs in these styles from your music library. There is even an overall theme song called "The Beat of the World" for your students to experience.
