Jazz for the little ones

THE MIGRATORY BIRDS family concert with BonNoir Trio

BonNoir Trio takes the audience on the long flight to West Africa on strong wings. Here they meet the hunter, who must turn his weapon into a musical instrument and henceforth must turn all pain into joy. Since 2016, BonNoir Trio has played for children and adults at home and abroad. They draw inspiration from traditional music from West Africa, Blues and Jazz. The music is open, groovy and lyrical music, with plenty of room for improvisation and the magic of the moment. In 2022, the trio released the album MALA. The group was nominated by Jazzdanmark for the Children’s Jazz Award 2022.
