Bob Marley for babies
Bob Marley for babies is the second part of the trilogy that La petita malumaluga kicked off with the international hit Beatles for babies (a tribute concert to The Beatles).
Four singing dancers, or four dancing singers, and a cellist perform sophisticated vocal arrangements of the greatest hits by Bob Marley, one of the leading African-American cultural icons of the 20th century.
An explosion of energy sung and danced where the audience – seated inside an immersive 360-degree scenography – is the protagonist at all times.
This time, La petita malumaluga sets out to create bridges between Marley's pan-Africanist and equality beliefs, and feminist causes in various stages of women's lives and in different regions around the world.
Music, dance, participation, technology, reflection and new scenic languages for the most demanding audience: early childhood and their families.
“[…] The ideology of La petita malumaluga, which does not reject political discourse or social positions, is born from a critical view of what is usually done for children. That’s why their creations are very learly detached from the clichés. And that is what is surprising. […]”. El País
“[…] La Petita Malumaluga engages in a one-to-one dialogue with babies, putting them on the same level, treating them as citizens of our times, placing them in a universe that is not at all childish, which is rather sophisticated, elegant and visually powerful but very strict and not very permissive with the usual conventionalisms […]” Susy Q
“[…] a world reference for performing arts for babies and their families […]” TVE
“[…] interactive, immersive and reflects on the values of gender and race equality. […]” Cadena Ser
“[…] a comforting joy […] the best possible tribute […]” Recomana.cat
