Jabulani! features:
  • Chants, calls, raps, group harmonies, and improvisations help you find your voice
  • Easy instructions for making drums, shakers, and other instruments from scrap materials
  • How to organize and lead a music session
  • Suggestions for adapting activities for participants with special needs
  • Ideas for using music with storytelling, sports activities, puppetry, and drama
