Tahitian Rhythms Rock — E Honu Iti E

In music class this week the kids and I learned the Tahitian “Mati” rhythm, though we didn’t quite do it like this. The ensemble shown in this video performing at San Jose, California’s Tahiti Fete 2008 digs into the drums with passion. (More from Tahiti Fete — “Da Island Way.”) See you next week in class when we go to Ireland and dance a jig!
