Kadul with Ryka Ali Dance Performance

On Monday we watched a fantastic performance from Ryka Ali and his grandmother Cindy Drummond at the school. Ryka taught us some Torres Strait Island dances and showed us traditional artifacts, musical instruments and costumes of the islands. We were all able to participate in the dances and some students even performed on stage. Ryka then shared aspects of the aboriginal culture, including 'painting up' with ochre and traditional hunting tools. He followed up with some amazing didgeridoo playing and dancing. Ryka even got Ms Tahlia and Mr Love up on stage to do the kangaroo dance. It was lots of fun and we learned a lot about our indigenous cultures.
