I've been visiting Pooncarie with Dee regularly this year to work with children through Pooncarie Children's Outreach Services. We have been exploring music and singing through pitch and rhythm, and how it all comes together. Some of the children will be performing when they get together for their Christmas gathering in town, so we sat down and came up with some lyrics. Dee kindly put them together into song lyric form and I added some music. The video above is the result of all that, together with the voices of the mum's and children, and some help on percussion from the infants :-)
It has been a great experience for the children who live in such remote areas to get together every fortnight but funding is short and without it, next year's sessions are threatened.
