Bumblebee Kids is proud to present OCTOPRETZEL, a fabulously whimsical, exuberant musical adventure with themes of nature, tolerance and understanding for the young & young at heart!
Watch, listen and participate as they weave through different cultures and musical styles for this singable, danceable concert. Joyful, jumpin’ music sets the tone as Octopretzel invites you to explore the wonders of nature and the world around us and takes the audience on a journey with fantastically folksy interactive, inspirational songs.
The event begins at 11am with a hands-on art activity and our musical adventure begins at 11:30 and will last approximately one hour.
Bring family and friends to the Osher Marin JCC and join us for 90 minutes of fun, inspiring, interactive art and live music together!
OCTOPRETZEL'S music is comprised of original songs as well as tried and true traditional favorites. It’s whimsical and fun, and has an underlying sensitivity for nature, feelings and story. Best described as folk music, it crosses generations and genres, weaving together styles such as bluegrass, rock and roll, lullabies and even nursery rhymes. Octopretzel shows integrate elements of many cultures such as African drumming, klezmer fiddling, middle-eastern percussion and singing styles, and songs with words in Spanish, Hebrew and even Quechua. Performing regularly for Jewish organizations, events, and holidays, they have also done shows comprised entirely of Christmas carols. Their priority is to make their music accessible to all listeners and to create music that is truly enjoyable for families, not just kids.
