Frutos do Som & Sanna Mansikkaniemi

The Brazilian Aurora Martins and Leandro Pellagio are specialists in artistic education for children. They work with the popular music of their home country, including visual arts and theatre to their projects. Since 2016 they work together with the freelance musician and multi-instrumentalist Sanna Mansikkaniemi, creating multicultural programs for different age groups. Sanna has graduated from Sibelius-Academy and she has done several music and music theatre projects in cooperation with music institutions and churches around Finland.
About their motivation to participate in Kolibrí, they share: ‘The aim of our interactive program is to introduce Brazilian and Finnish culture by using singing, body percussion and dancing. We use both Brazilian and Finnish songs to make a link between these different cultures. The idea is to show that similar musical forms have been used in both countries.’
Come and dance with them!
