Indian Music Composition

We have been exploring Indian classical music and here is a composition by Michael LeahThomas. It is made up of a drone and improvisation based on Raga Malakosh. This raga is based on a scale that is meant to have a peaceful and meditative quality. See what you think!

With help from the London Symphony Orhcestra the children from Rose ward at the Royal Brompton Hospital drew different patterns and symbols to represent musical instruments and then composed a piece called The Shape Song. 

Listen to The Shape Song created by Kevin (5), Christina (14), Chelsea (14), Caroline and Robin.  Many thanks to Sarah and Vanessa from the London Symphony Orchestra.
