Rainbow Sambas Outdoor Drums With Election Fever

Show Your True Colours This Election

In the spirit of the upcoming UK elections Percussion Play have coloured our most popular product - the Rainbow Sambas - in the colours of five major UK parties.

As Great Britain is now in the grip of election fever and as the public head to the polls we definitely don’t want to use our blog as any sort of political crusade and will remain apolitical, merely demonstrating that our drums are suitable whatever your political leanings!

And this multi-coloured set is sure to strike a chord with the floating voter.

About Rainbow Sambas Outdoor Drums Rainbow Sambas are tuned, fully functional musical instruments and not just playground equipment. Movement, timing, rhythm, these are the very basis of drumming and studies have shown that a child's sense of timing—that is, the ability to feel and express a steady beat—has a dramatic effect on speech flow, motor skills, sporting ability, and other important developmental characteristics.

These outdoor drums are perfect for children to experiment and explore music and sound in a fun, interactive and hands-on way. Drumming is a physical activity and is almost as much an athletic endeavour as it is a musical one, using up lots of energy whilst allowing plenty of creative expression and emotional release.

Playing the Rainbow Samba drums can be the most rewarding experience and because there are five of them, present a wonderful opportunity for friends, families or classmates to come together and create some amazing musical energy, with everyone getting to share their rhythmic ideas and make some wonderful music in the moment.

These drums provide total hands-on music experiences for children. They are child focussed and children will move and explore the places in the brain and body where rhythm lives and thrives.
