Program for kindergarden and primary school

Ssassa Schnabelwetzer Kinder

Ssassa proposes to schools a show for children of all ages. Three musicians and a danser invite the kids to participate in singing, clapping and dancing. They get to know 7 songs in 7 languages.
With over 20 original instruments like gajda, zurna, bouzoukie, flamencoguitar and darabuka Ssassa take their audiences on a journey from Sevilla through Balkan countires to Istanbul and Kairo.
Ssassa intend to obtain a new access for children of foreign origin, to find new pleasure in their cultures of origin. Often emigrated children hide their cultural background, in order to integrate. But they loose an important source, their roots. Also for native kids the program is of great joy: They participate right from the beginning and they might even learn, that foreign music and dance is exciting.
