Finland - "Oi Dai"

Happy greetings from Finland! We play and sing “Oi dai”, a traditional Finnish folksong from eastern Finland and the story of the song is telling about happy childhood, dear family and friends.

All the 21 pupils of the class 3A play instruments on this video: KANTELEs (Finnish national instrument), violin, recorder, double bass, xylophones, percussions and the children made the plan for the video and one of the pupils did the filming.

We hope you enjoy the song!

Hi Finland,

It's great to see how all the children play the instruments themselves! A whole lot of rehearsing must have gone into this lovely folk song!

A very nice entry this is!

Hello Finland. I like children play instruments, and here it was a celebration to the ears and soul. I like the balloons and the traditional games the children played. A very nice clip.GREETINGS TO ALL CHILDREN. MEIRAV. ISRAEL
