Musical opportunities for children
and young people in Blackburn with Darwen




Heartbeat Drumming Groups are weekly sessions which take place in local community centres. In addition there are some individual or small blocks of workshops during the year. The groups work with a fusion of styles including Samba, Bhangra and African rhythms. All sessions welcome young people between the ages of 8 and 14.

The weekly sessions will be a fusion of rhythms based on Samba, Bhangra and African rhythms from South Asia, Africa and South America. The groups are open to any young people. These groups and associated workshops in schools will lead to the creation of a new Community Percussion Ensemble based in Blackburn.

Young people will be encouraged to develop their skills as young leaders as part of this programme and anyone who is interested should get in touch.

These sessions FREE to participants.
