Fest Afrika Concert for Children
August 14, 2021 in Pakkahuone
Maco Oey & Mabadiriko Band
Maco Oey is a musician from Tampere who has released eight solo albums. The newest children’s album is called Maco Oey: Siistii! and it was nominated as an Emma candidate in 2020 in the children’s music category.
All the songs on the album have been composed by Maco and the lyrics are by Jaakko Löytty. The songs tell fun stories about recycling, animals and inclusiveness, among other things. They are musically interesting by changing rhythms, varying in style from wild tunes to mellow ballads with imaginative arrangements. The songs bring joy as well as knowledge to children, and give them an experience of togetherness.
Mabadiriko Band presents on stage:
Menard Mponda on percussions and Janne Saksa on guitars.
