US IN 10 SECONDS
We have played music together since we met and fell for each other 29 years ago
We give around 150 concerts a year, both in Denmark - our home - and around the world
We love to pass on our passion for music to the next generation
We believe that small ears deserve better than musical mush
We compose, record and produce our own music
Sille & Palle don’t play FOR an audience – we play WITH our audience.
Playing music with kids (and their adults) is what we live for.
At the moment, we're touring with two shows:
THE BIGGEST BAND IN TOWN
When Sille & Palle come to visit and play, everyone is invited to join in. Together we become The Biggest Band in Town.
Our philosophy is simple... we are all musicians. Kids just need a little help and encouragement to release their inner musician.
During the show, the audience interacts with Sille & Palle to form the band with 8 different instruments. Kids learn the sound of each instrument and its musical role. A specially created cartoon universe adds an extra dimension of fun as the level of participation increases. Finally, the Biggest Band is formed, and everyone sings and dances to raise the roof.
It's our hope that this concert can inspire more kids to begin to play a musical instrument.
By starting young, it's possible to plant seeds that grow into a love and appreciation for all types of musical styles.
In this concert, kids are introduced to 10 of the world's favourite musical genres with the help of beloved classics from Bartok to Brahms from Brazil to Berlin. Classic melodies like "Girl from Ipanema" and "Ravel's Bolero" are performed like you have never seen or heard them before. The audience gets totally involved, learning how to beat a rhythm and create harmonies using their own bodies, paper and even a giant balloon.
“Thanks for amazing concerts! You guys are super good! I love that you take children seriously, get a good interaction, are positive, responsive and match this with good music. Lovely! You are always welcome back”

“From the first moment Sille and Palle started to play they had the full attention from the large crowd of children and adults. They played generously through a captivating show that never lost momentum.”
