Northern Streams: Kids Singing Workshop

04 April 2009
The Scottish Storytelling Centre
£5 (children)*

A chance for children (5-10 years) to try joiking with Ante Mikkel Gaup (featured in Joanna Lumley's 'Northern Lights' BBC programme) and his daughter Inger-Biret Gaup from Finnmark, northern Norway. Also to learn about the Saami people who inhabit northern Scandinavia, Finland and northwest Russia, and whose distinctive culture has at least ten language variations! The Saami vocal music style called joiking bears similarities to Native American music but has its own uniqueness. One of Ante's other daughters is part of the famous group Adjagas. Workshop explanations will be in English.

Tickets also available from 0795 191 8366 or e-mail: eltmsa@yahoo.co.uk

* Children must be accompanied by an adult (accompanying adults free and welcome to join in!)
