In a studio-theatre setting, a musical group, consisting of bass, guitar, drums, flute, percussion and three backing singers, accompany three young singers, a pianist and a guitarist performing a traditional and up-tempo Caribbean folk song. As they sing, the backing singers sign the words of the song in Makaton. At the end of the song an animated Widgit symbol for ‘your turn’ appears on-screen. The song is repeated. During the repeat the words to the song appear as captions in the bottom of the frame and the camera focuses on the backing singers - encouraging viewers to sing the song with them.
