Based upon Juan Kruz Igerabide´s novel: Amilami; it tells the stories of mermaids in basque traditional legends. The contahistoria alternates with the smelling of herbs and the singing of traditional lullabies interpreted with various instruments.
In its last version, a new musician called Lamine Diawara, from Senegal sings also songs and plays African percussion and pumpkins. At the end of the storytelling, the kids enjoy taking home aromatic leafs and playing a wide range of musical instruments.
