SAT 10.8. 14:00 Children’s Saturday: Henxelit

The Etno-Espa Children’s Saturday is kicked off by the children’s music orchestra Henxelit, which presents captivating stories, bouncy tunes and soulful musings of the great miracles of life, interpreted through an acoustic array of instruments. Henxelit ask questions, give advice, invite to play and offer all Children’s Saturday audiences tasty treats, from polka to Delta blues, and from swing to Finnish jenkka. A spontaneous feel and smiling faces are at the core of this family concert.  Founded in 2007, the ensemble plays gigs at childcare centres, schools, assisted living facilities and different events all around Finland.
