It is never too early to introduce the youngest members of the family to the Fab Four.
This is a warm and exciting tribute to the Beatles, adapted for the little ones by four musicians and a dancer. The children are invited to dance, clap their hands, drum, look at the instruments, and move about – to the sound of immortal songs like Yesterday, Let it Be, and Hey Jude in new arrangements. At this concert performance, the audience is encouraged to storm the stage!
The Beatles songs are performed on violin, cello, clarinet, and percussion, in a tent in the middle of Logen. Big and small are encouraged to participate in the performance through interactive video, song, and rhythm instruments. The sound level is adjusted to suit young ears, and the music appeals to all across the generations.
After performing before full houses in Spain the Barcelona based group La petita malumaluga have gone on tour with Beatles for babies to Asia and South America – and now they are visiting Bergen International Festival. Perhaps your youngest’s first words will be ‘Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da’?
