HELLO AMIGO! (Children Family Program)

"Hey amigo!" Hello my friend! or Hello my friend! It is a friendly greeting in Swedish / Spanish.

When the music, rhythms, movements and lyrics invite you to participate, it becomes easier to learn to sing, dance, count and greet in different languages.
The days of the week are filled with activities and they swing forward, one after the other while the children in their imagination help to wash clothes, wash dishes, fish, paint and clean.
Counting in different languages ​​can be exciting in itself, but counting every other time, jumping on one leg, running fast, stomping your feet and afterwards counting backwards during calypso, reggae or samba beats will be a completely different thing.
How about a choreographed hip hop where everyone can participate and learn to rap?
At the end is a "Keep your distance Sambakarneval". Dance and get loose, now it's party!
Duration of the program: 35 minutes

Marco Rios: Singing, guitar and dance. Natalie Knutzen: Singing, ukulele and dancing.

CD: Hey amigo! Library, Spotify, YouTube and other digital channels.
