What would happen if Bjork ran off Into The Night Garden with a Teletubby?
Elska would happen, that’s what.
My pal dad blogging, music loving pal, Jeff Bogle, is a huge fan. “..pure of heart, unique, musically sophisticated, and, quite frankly, absolutely breathtaking….a transcendent work that your young children will hold dear.”
Elska lives on a newly formed volcano island off the coast of Iceland. She sings in her own silly language (see Hiddi Hiddi above), but is also fluent in English. 🙂 She enjoys hiking to the Land of the Lost Socks, watching the Northern Lights, and playing with her friend, the Goobler.
“This show is not a girl singing folk music who lives with her cat and dog, but this is a girl who lives somewhere new, with a Goobler,” explains Shelley Wollert, Elska‘s creator. “Immediately, that invites the question, ‘What is a Goobler?’ It’s an invitation to get involved. What does the Goobler do? Does he exist for real? Not everything is spelled out for kids and that is what’s really fun about it – it ignites play.”
Got kids who have wild imaginations or need to have theirs kickstarted a bit? Elska‘s show is perfect and… I’m giving away tickets!
The prize is two tickets to the Sunday, February 7th show at 3:30 pm, along with Elska’s latest CD Middle of Nowhere.
