Congas, Zendrum Create Unique Holiday Music at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

It features a five-piece percussion band called The Village Beatniks and they’re playing Christmas and Hanukkah songs, adding jingle bells to their usual assortment of bongos and congas and tom-toms.

While four Village Beatniks keep the rhythm going, the fifth member plays melodies on a Zendrum — a MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) percussion controller. That means you can play an assortment of synthesized instruments and drums, literally at your fingertips. Next time you’re visiting Disney’s Animal Kingdom, listen for the Village Beatniks near Flame Tree Barbecue.
