All song... and a little action – Children´s jazz festival
Children´s well-known songs, now with a touch of jazz!
All song... and a little action is part of Umeå Jazz festival. It is about both listening and singing. Sometimes the one, sometimes the other, and sometimes both at the same time. We start by listening to the silence, then by singing at the top of our lungs, before finally concluding with the world's quietest rendition of Blinka Lilla Stjärna (Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star).
As part of the Jazz Festival, classical children's songs will be performed by a trio of musicians – vocalist Margareta Bengtson (former member of The Real Group), jazz pianist Mathias Algotsson and tuba player Per Sjöberg. Using jazz as their tool, they twist and invert those old, well-known songs, while also adding a few new ones to the mix.
Everyone is invited to sing, contribute and be a part of All song... and a little action!
