“My son can’t stop talking about The Belly of the Whale. Debi’s ability to transport you to the heart of the story is incredible, and the entire animal kingdom seems to be contained within Oren’s tuba and percussion. Fantastic session!” (Matt, father of Luca)
Take one singing storyteller and one acclaimed multi-instrumentalist. Then add the most imaginative and receptive of all audiences – small children. Now say hello to DEBI+OREN.
Bringing together decades of experience in entertainment and education, DEBI+OREN came together as a result of a few exploratory sessions between former recording artist Debbie Sanders (Chapter & The Verse, Skylab) and jazz musician Oren Marshall (played with Radiohead, Hermeto Pascoal, Bobby McFerrin ).
By combining their improvisational and narrative skills, the pair evolved a fully immersive, multigenerational experience in which kids and adults are encouraged to explore the instruments and their vibrations and sounds, and join in creating music and stories.The atmosphere at a DEBI+OREN sessions is inclusive and friendly, everyone has a part to play. There are no mistakes, but plenty of laughter. No audience, but lots of participants. Let’s make some noise!
Especially suitable for children aged 0-7
