Explore the evolution of rhythm through musical traditions from around the world! 

Today’s a big day for percussionists and good friends Marton and Bruno. Marton is getting ready for a drum audition and must be able to play a variety of rhythms from various regions of the world. Bruno is marching in a big multicultural parade and has no idea what instruments to choose, as the possibilities seem endless. Racking their brains, the two friends drum up some ideas… right before our eyes and ears! 

They’ll explore all sorts of percussion—the cajón, claves, surdo, bodhran, djembe—and all sorts of countries and regions around the world—Peru, Brazil, Cuba, Ireland, the United States, Africa… and, of course, Quebec! But will Marton and Bruno each manage to find the right rhythm by the end of this wild and wonderful day?
