Children's songs to samba rhythms. How does Troll Mother sing in South America? Papagøyene's repertoire consists of well-known children's songs rearranged in the Brazilian and Caribbean spirit. The music is bursting with energy, with lots of rhythms, simple tunes, whistling, and funny instruments. Percussionist and cultural mediator Asbjørn Sundal started the band in 2006 on request from Bajazz and Bergen Jazzforum. The background was his love for world music, especially the music from Brazil, and a wish to take children seriously. According to the experienced musician you will not find a more critical audience then those who are less then three feet tall. This free concert at Fløyen takes your head and your hips on a round trip of the world. Whistling, singing, and dancing are obligatory for both young and old. «This was not a concert for those who enjoy peace and quiet. One had to dance, jump, laugh, and simply have fun.» – AVISA HORDALAND Papagøyene Asbjørn Sundal percussion, vocal Erik Håkon Halvorsen keys Torbjørn Hillersøy bass, vocal Tor Bjarne Bjelland drums In collaboration with Fløibanen AS Supported by Grieg Foundation and the Kavli Trust Recommended ages  All Free admission
