Den olydiga ballongen
Den olydiga ballongen is part of Umeå Jazzfestival
The performance Den olydiga ballongen was written by Gunnel Linde and Bo Sundblad and was later immortalised by Alice Babs and Bengt Hallberg's adaptation of the music and text in the 1960s.
The jazz musicians singer Lina Nyberg has brought together
her children's showband to play at the Jazz Festival. The band has
some of Sweden's most talented musicians. They will be performing
together, but Lina's new arrangement gives the music a direct and
spontaneous voice and, together with the musicians in the
children's showband, this ensures a captivating and vibrant concert
experience for an enthusiastic young audience.
National Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter had this to say after its première:
"… 100 per cent successful in establishing a dialogue with its young audience. As usual, her adaptation is both elegant and playful and, starting with the excellent material at her disposal, she opens a broader window onto the vast treasure that is Swedish music for children, with a particular focus on the '60s and '70s."
