Over the past four weeks, workshop leaders Sam Glazer and John Webb have been working with children from Osmani and Kobi Nazrul Primary Schools to compose their own songs that they will perform at the Royal Academy of Music next Monday as part of our Elements project.

Join us on Monday 4 February, 1.05pm at the Duke’s Hall, Royal Academy of Music for the premiere performance of Elemental Songs and Dances.

Here’s a sneak preview of the children’s songs:

Kobi Nazrul Primary School
Year 4 Class – Rita Bach
Sam Glazer

Clear as a Crystal

whispered:  p, p, p, p,
pitter, patter,
p, p, p, p,

You drip like beads, falling from a string (whispered: splish splash)
Rushing through pipes, flowing all around, (whispered: splish splash)
Clear as a crystal  (whispered: splish splash)

You drip like beads, falling from a string, (whispered: splish splash)
Rushing through pipes, flowing all around, (whispered: splish splash)
Falling like diamonds from the sky,
Falling like diamonds from the sky.
Refreshing everywhere!

Grey clouds, purple sky,
Angry like a volcano,
Fierce like a tiger

whispered:  p, p, p, p,
pitter, patter,

Osmani Primary School
Saffron Class – Clare Hooper
John Webb

Air Song

Whoosh!
I glide with the sea and dance with the clouds

Shhh/ssss
Have a nice day I say to the world

But I’m bored

I want to steal trousers from washing lines and balloons from little children

I want to steal skin to sleep in, eyes to see, food to eat
And the happiness of the world

If I don’t get what I want I’ll huff and I’ll puff
I’ll become a tornado
And steal your mind.
