On Thursday, 12 April 2018, the Rusangano Family came to do a Rap workshop in our school. The Rusangano Family are based in Limerick and they produce socially-engaged music that mixes a global variety of cultures and traditions. Two members of the group, MuRli and GodKnows, delivered a very engaging, entertaining and energetic workshop to about twenty students. Students learned about the Three Rs of Rap: Rhythm, Rhyme and Reason. They learnt the history of rap internationally and nationally. Students also received a live performance of three raps about social integration, Irish life, and some random musings! They got the opportunity to discover their own talent to feel the groove, and allow their own narrative to speak from their own souls in a very creative way. It was a workshop which encouraged positive expression between the poet and musician within each of us. I am sure that we will hear more from the students in the future.
We are very grateful to Ann Catherine Nolan and Music Generation for providing us with this wonderful opportunity.
Thanks to students Ryan Ebbs, Chloe Bishop and Shauna Monahan for helping to write this article.
