What to bring: * Drumsticks! If you can bring extra sticks to share, even better! * Small percussion instruments are welcome: cowbells, agogo bells, tambourines, claves, shakers, sleigh bells, triangles, shekeres, maracas, body jewellery, finger cymbals, etc. * Anything that can make noise on the street: kitchen utensils, paint brushes, pencils, chopsticks, tap shoes, keys, etc. Be creative! * Please don’t bring musical instruments (drums, horns, guitars) as we want to emphasize the use of the actual street as the instrument.
