Children get to listen to their favourite songs performed by professional musicians with an array of diverse instruments, from the western cello to the Indian frame drum. This programme provides children with the opportunity to experience a performance with high levels of musicianship, while at the same time, feel a sense of familiarity, as the songs performed are children’s favourites! 

The performance allows for children to participate through singing, dancing, and jamming along with simple classroom instruments, household items or even items from nature.

Coconut-based products are regional, accessible and sustainable and your children get to make these hanging planters for your home!
