Oran Etkin: Timbalooloo Jazz For Kids Duo Series

with special guest Vitor Gonçalves on accordion



In Timbalooloo, instruments come to life and speak through their music, encouraging children to conceive of playing music as performing the magical act of making their instrument talk! The Timbalooloo Monthly Duo Series at National Sawdust features Oran Etkin with his sidekick Clara Net (Etkin’s clarinet) meeting a new instrument friend from around the world each month. Recent guests have included a kora player from Mali, a percussionist from Brazil, and a a pianist from New Orleans. The concerts are highly interactive — children will be singing along, drumming, and learning new dances as they become friends with Clara Net and her instrument friends from around the world, excited and empowered to create music themselves.
