Take a musical journey with Ginalina and special guests!

Immerse yourselves in a wonderful interactive and multilingual concert themed on the value of every child, and the small but mighty roles we play in nature stewardship, community building, and everyday kindness.  Sing, dance, and be part of the Western and Eastern musical wonders of Accordion, Guitar, Ukulele, Percussion, Erhu, and Zither, alongside Ginalina’s Friends and Guests from the Vancouver Chinese Music Ensemble. 

Ginalina is a bright star on the Canadian Family Folk scene and three-time JUNO-nominated Artist with music videos CBC and BC Kids’ Knowledge Network.  This concert includes songs from her newest album, and will be in English, French, and Mandarin with printable activity booklets. Watch the video below.

Plongez dans un concert interactif et multilingue sur le thème de la valeur de chaque enfant et des rôles modestes mais puissants que nous jouons dans la protection de la nature, le développement communautaire et la gentillesse au quotidien.  Chantez et dansez avec des merveilles de l’est et de l’ouest — l’accordéon, la guitare, du ukulélé, des percussions, de l’erhu et de la cithare, aux côtés des amis de Ginalina et des invités de Vancouver Chinese Music Ensemble.

Ginalina est une étoile brillante de la scène folk-familiale canadienne et une artiste trois fois nominée aux prix JUNO avec des vidéos sur CBC et BC Kids’ Knowledge Network. Le concert inclue des chansons de se nouvelle album et sera en anglais, français et mandarin avec des livrets d’activités imprimables.

Show highlights

Rave Reviews

Ginalina went to touching lengths to create an engaging and delightful concert to uplift any spirit. Guitar, ukulele, story, and accordion made this show richly musical in her signature down-to-earth style! Also such a treat to present Mandarin and French songs for our audience.

Whistler International Children’s Festival 

Our favourite anthem-maker! Her songs inspire every child to dream, and every adult to be a champion that kids need.
