Fun for the whole family at the first Hand in Hand’s festival in Shanghai, 2017
Eager to share great music with your kids? Then make sure to check out the Hand in Hand International Children’s Music Festival, China’s first international music festival created for the whole family, which is about to happen on Sunday, June 3 in Beijing.
The festival was founded by American journalist Rebecca Kanthor and her husband, Chinese musician, and author Liu Jian. They are bringing together bands from all over the world to play a family-friendly mix of rock and pop music for an audience of kids, allowing all kids in China to experience the magic of live music and learn about different cultures.
For this year they are inviting Lucky Diaz and the Family Jam Band from the US, and Hippe Gasten from the Netherlands to tour in 15 Chinese cities starting from late April.
About Lucky Diaz and the Family Jam Band
The band are two-time Latin Grammy Award and three-time Emmy award winners. They are the stars of PBS program Lishy Lou and Lucky Too, a color-splashed, family-friendly variety show. Their catchy song Thingamajig was named “Song of the Year,” and called “a smash hit!” by several parenting publications.
About Hippe Gasten
