Families fill Guildhall Square with the sounds of Caribbean music at Music in the City


On the afternoon of Saturday 29 September, as part of Music in the City, families of all shapes and sizes came together in Guildhall Square, picking up a Bamboo Tamboo — many for the very first time — to play Caribbean music together.

Led by Tom Gregory, percussion teacher for Southampton Music Services, the free, open-access workshops spread music right across the square, with new families joining in, and onlookers clapping along.

Matt Brombley, Projects and Partnerships Manager for Southampton Music Hub, says:
”There is something incredible about the power of music to bring people together. It doesn’t matter your age, your background or your musical experience — anyone can enjoy making music.”
