Hambone: Syrian & Jordanian Kids Learn A Classic American Tune

Watch: this Spring, The Syria Fund brought two days of music-making fun to Syrian and Jordanian students in Sahab, Jordan. Here, they learn and perform a classic American tune.

The Syria Fund partnered with S'Cool Sounds and the Middle East Children's Institute (MECI) to host two days of music making in Sahab, Jordan. We introduced the classic American tune "hambone" and had the students learn the rhythm and recorder melody, and add their own lyrics! In the end, they performed the piece for family and friends on stage!
