Two leading world music stars showed off their skills at a primary school as part of a celebration of diversity.

Gambian percussionist Musa Mboob and Tanzanian multi-instrumentalist Saidi Kanda performed for pupils at Fairlight Primary School in Hastings Road, Brighton, on Friday.

Headteacher Damien Jordan said the performance was part of a diversity week at the school encouraging people from different backgrounds and cultures to come into the school to share ideas, performances and skills.

Mr Jordan added: “Our aims are to celebrate and respect our similarities and differences as well as to create a sense of wonder and excitement about the world around us.

“With this in mind we noted that Saidi was performing locally so we made contact and he agreed to come into school to perform to launch this exciting event.”

Yes, having different cultures makes the world a more exciting place.

It's a real shame, though, that many in the UK want the UK's culture to be swamped by others.

Diversity - yes, absorption - no.
