Created and performed by Kristof Hiriart
Mokofina is a transformative musical and cultural experience. Basque performer Kristof Hiriart is a vocal artist, percussionist, multi-instrumentalist, composer, and singer that blends traditional and contemporary sounds to create an enchanting musical journey for very young children.
Children are ushered into a dimly lit room with warm light emanating from the stage. Performer Kristof Hiriart is already on stage making sounds with a strange stringed instrument that rests on the side of his mouth as he taps the string. He segues into making other sounds with his mouth, speaks a kind of gibberish that almost sounds like language, and creates rhythmic sounds tapping the many and various jars, glasses, containers and jugs around him. He also uses jam jars. He dips a finger into a jar and noisily licks each finger. The children are mesmerized.
Artistic Director says: This is an absolutely magical musical experience for little one’s and their grownup guests.
