It hums and it thrums
through day and night
the magical, mystical
rhythm of life!
Follow the story of music back to the very beginning.
Did it start with a stomp or a clap?
This playful poem is an ode to the colourful world of music and rhythm.
Written by James Carter and illustrated by Valerio Vidali.
