Vellamo music workshop

Philadelphia Suomi-koulu music workshop

Pia and Joni with their song writing assistants

The¬†Philadelphia Suomi-koulu had a great time learning about Finnish folk music this Sunday at a song writing workshop by Vellamo (Pia Leinonen & Joni Tiala). Under Pia and Joni’s instruction the students wrote a song called “Hei hei pupu.” The children got to sing, play rhythm instruments and practice performing the song.

We think they came up with a very catchy tune, so feel free to sing along!
