Sonns tla natöra – Sound workshop for children

 

The energy of sound accompanies us from before we are born. Just think that hearing is the first sense we develop in the womb and after four months it is already fully developed, which is why children are attracted and “captured” by sound and its harmony.

The proposed activity allows this harmony to be experienced joyfully, through listening to and using live sound instruments that reproduce the sounds of Nature’s elements such as the wind blowing through the treetops, the sound of the flowing stream, the sound of the sea wave and its clear water, the sound of rain.

We will also discover new sounds through the use of different sound instruments such as Tibetan bells, gongs, kalimba, drums, harmonic tubes, cymbals, wind chimes, seeds, rattles and shells and many other original sound instruments from different countries around the world.

All together we will create and be one big sound circle of harmony, smiles and fun.

For children from 3 to 8 years.

In the area La Crusc, this event will be hosted by the mountain hut Ütia Lé.
