The Uncle Devin Show is an interactive musical experience for children that use percussion instruments to cultivate their minds - a dynamic cross between Fat Albert and Schoolhouse. It takes children on a magical journey through the Land of Percussion allowing them to hear, see and play different percussion instruments. Children will gain an understanding of the history of percussion and why it is the easiest, oldest and most diverse form of musical creativity.
