Welcome to the Musical Contexts World Music Resources section.  The aim of this area is to provide a comprehensive bank of resources on World Music suitable for a wide range of ages, rather than a specific key stage.  As such, the resources haven’t been “labeled” for a particular age group but flexible enough to be used between Primary and Secondary music lessons when focusing on different genres of World Music.  Elements of World Music now appear in some of the newly updated Primary/KS2 and Secondary/KS3 Musical Contexts units where appropriate and resources have been collected into Musical Contexts World Music Guides to Salsa, Steel Bands, Calypso, Gamelan, Indian and Chinese Music below. There’s also some Knowledge Organisers on World Music and suggestions for how a Scheme of Work could be put together if focusing on one specific genre of World Music.  The following  Musical Contexts units focus on one type of World Music genre:  Offbeat (Reggae), “Samba” (Samba), “Saharan Sounds” (African)

The Musical Contexts “Rhythms of the World” World Music Passport

Continuing the Musical Contexts “Passport” series, this 10-page A4 collated template can be printed back-to-back (or enlarged to A3) forming a 20-page “Passport” for students to research and ‘visit’ 5 different countries around the world to explore their music.  Pupils visit Africa, India, China, Indonesia and Latin-America researching musical  instruments from within each world music genre, defining key words and terms relating to that type of world music and watch, listen and reflect on a piece of world music (suggestions are given in the form of QR codes which link directly to YouTube audio and video performances) for music from that country.  There’s also a reflection activity and a word search of key words and terms. 

“Rhythms of the World” World Music Passport - basic A4 on 20 pages version for anyone having problems with printing.
