How to do the Kupugani Beat!

Have you got that beat? That Kupugani beat?  This is a fun camp song that takes some campers and counselors (and camp directors) a lifetime to master! You arrive at camp on the Sunday and are having a great time, when dinner time arrives and returning campers start with the Kupugani beat!

So they do it really slow and you think you’re starting to get it, when two words you don’t want to hear happen–“full speed”! And suddenly all that you thought you had disappears and you know nothing again.

Don’t despair thought, because the light bulb moment will happen. When you finally get it, that is the best feeling in the world. This is what Kupugani is about–challenging oneself by taking on a difficult task and persevering until you get it done!
