In a studio-theatre setting, a group of young people accompany an atmospheric, Latin-inspired piece playing percussion instruments and a sound beam. They are supported by musicians playing a flute, a recorder, a djembe and additional percussion. At the end of the piece an animated Widgit symbol for ‘your turn’ appears on-screen. The piece is repeated. During the repeat the young people put down their percussion instruments and use clapping, humming, thigh slapping and feet stamping to accompany the musicians.
