Jongo is a term associated with the style of drumming (and it’s notation) prevalent in Western Africa, primarily in Ghana. The system of notation uses a horizontal series of eight empty boxes, each representing half of one beat. If the composer desires a musician to play on a certain beat, they draw a darkened circle in the box. These rows of boxes are stacked vertically. The students will demonstrate an understanding of the Western African form of notation and drumming known as Jongo by creating and performing their own Jongos using the keyboards.
