South Iranian story telling

Milverton Kindergarten


We celebrated the rich cultural diversity that we have in our community. Today Bahar’s Mum, Somajeh came in to share some South Iranian drumming and story telling with us.

As she drummed, she told us a traditional tale about a boy called Hasani who didn’t want to wash himself and his friends didn’t want to play with him; however when he washed and cleaned himself, his friends wanted to play with him. She also showed us how we could make different drum beats, by showing us how she drums at birthday and wedding celebrations.

What a lot we can learn from each other when we celebrate and share our own special talents.
