Schoolchildren get a taste of Africa

Children at primary schools around the Island have been moving to an African beat this week, after a musical visit many of them won't forget.

Drummer and teacher Felix Ngindu, who's from the Democratic Republic of Congo, is here to perform at this weekend's Festival of Manx Connections.

And in the run-up to the event, he's been touring schools, bringing vibrant west African sounds and colour to music lessons and assemblies.

Cheryl Cousins from the One World Centre invited Felix to the Isle of Man.

She says the children have really enjoyed meeting him:
