Danny Mesél (Stories with Danny) is a series of musical and theatrical performances for children, performed by Hungarian-based American musician Danny Bain.
At a Danny Mesél performance, you are just as likely to see traditional African drums and a Brazilian berimbau as you are to be chased by a home-made trombone made from a kitchen sink or asked to play a xylophone made from a ladder and junk metal. The catchy melodies, exciting stories, and Danny’s unique brand of musical comedy make for a one-of-a-kind show that is fun for the whole family.
While Danny’s first performances were based on African musical and storytelling traditions, his repertoire has since expanded to include folk music and traditions from around the world. Today he can be seen performing musical stories and children’s concerts, and putting on puppet shows both on the stage and on the water. Whatever the event, it can be sure that a Danny Mesél performance will blend the boundaries between theatre and music, and offer children a unique way to explore language, music and dance, learn about foreign cultures, and discover exciting instruments.
