Slap Happy (download of book and CD)Regular price $9.95
by Alan Dworsky and Betsy Sansby
This is the download version of Slap Happy, which includes the book in PDF format and the audio CD as mp3 files. Slap Happy is for kids of all ages. It turns drum rhythms into body rhythms you can step, clap, and slap with a buddy. Right from the start, you'll be learning traditional dance rhythms from West Africa and the Caribbean: Kuku from Guinea, Sunguru Bani from Mali, Kpegisu from Ghana, Bomba from Puerto Rico, and Conga from Cuba.
You can do Slap Happy in pairs or in groups, indoors or out, at home or at school. If you're a parent, it's a great way to do something fun and educational with your kids that doesn't require any previous musical training. If you're a music teacher, you can use Slap Happy to give your students a hands-on experience of world rhythms without having to buy any instruments. It's physical, it's funky, and it's fun!
Slap Happy is also available as part of my downloadable "Rhythm for Kids Package Deal" that includes the videos "Cup Drumming" and "Boomwhacker Rhythms" If you want all 3 for the price of 2, just click on the image on the left in the top row below.
