We are an intermediate classroom in an elementary school in British Columbia, Canada. We use our blogs as a place to practise expressing our ideas in writing (and maybe even sound, pictures & video when we're ready). We try to leave thoughtful comments for classmates & other bloggers we visit. Comments help us critique our ideas and our writing. They also motivate us to do more thinking, writing, sharing & revising.

Young People's Concert: Delhi 2 Dublin
On Tuesday, February 22, our school got to watch a performance by a group called Delhi 2 Dublin, as a part of our young people's concert series. Young people's concerts are performances watched by grades 4-7 students, from a variety of different schools. There are 4 performances in the series spread out through the whole year, which are all very entertaining in their own ways. My favorite performance, although I enjoyed all of them very much, would probably be Delhi 2 Dublin.
They were a group who mashed up music from India, and music from Ireland, all over electronic beats. They used instruments like: a dhol, a tabla, a sitar, and violins. A dhol is a large instrument, like a drum, you hit its sides with a stick. A tabla is a smaller version of a dhol, with a less loud sound. A sitar is an instrument similar to a guitar, but produces a softer sound.
During the show, the involvement they had with the crowd was superb. They "woke us up" in the morning with their wonderful sounds, and involvement. My favorite part of the show was the teachers dance off. First there were 10 teachers, then 4 finalists. The winner was eventually one of the teachers at our school, because our school cheered the loudest for our teacher. Overall, the performance was a great experience for me. Delhi 2 Dublin has also performed at other places such as: Canada Day at the Vancouver Convention center. Thank you for reading this article.

Delhi 2 Dublin made me think about The Junkman who caome to our school. He plays music from instruments made out of things people throw away. It's amazing the music he makes just out of old water bottles, pots & pans, and other "trash"! Check it out here:
