Though the song Juba is uniquely by children, it is most certainly one of mature and rational stance with enduring life lessons for all ages, such as finding more constructive ways to handle frustrations. Juba also displays children’s early understanding of injustice, and their ability to organize in demonstration. The addictive drumming style Pattin' Juba is a music for accompaniment! Children LOVE IT!
