Lesson #1: Kwame's Sound
Kwame is a young drummer in Ghana, and he’s come up with some great new rhythms. But how can he share them with his cousin in a far-off village, so they can perform together at the upcoming festival? One day Kwame, who is blind, journeys to the rainforest with his father, an acoustical engineer who helps biologists use sound to track elephant movements. When Kwame learns how recording devices represent sounds, he gets an idea for how to represent his drum rhythms so his cousin can learn them. Will the two boys be ready to drum as one?
