Music and light show in Swedish for children 0–5 years old
Stråkspråk is a children's concert - classical music mixed with folk music and jazz which uses movement and light to invite very young children - and their parents - into the living music's world. The violinist Ylva Larsdotter meets the jazz bassist Palle Sollinger in a musical concert which becomes a dialogue both in the music and with the public.
Idea and direction: Miriam Forsberg and Michael Forsberg
The concert was held in Katarina's parish, Högbergsgatan 15 A at 3 PM
