Lenaaert & de Bonski's: A fun way to learn Dutch

The stage act Lenaaert & de Bonski's have created a new stage show for people learning Dutch. The group made up of a Flemish singer and Russian musicians take their audience on an exploration of cultural identity through music and humour.

Lenaaert & de Bonski's new show is especially aimed at people learning Dutch. “De Bonski's kennen hun wereld”(The Bonskis’know their world) is full of Dutch-language world music and . it brings cultural identity is brought to the fore.

Why are the Russian Bonskis so different from the Belgian singer on stage with them? Are Scandinavian people really colder than Africans or South Americans? Why are Belgians always anxious to be on time? These are just some of the questions raised during this musical show full of humour, where the focus is on harmony and interaction with the audience.

A CD featuring a booklet full of language games has been produced to coincide with the show. An educational annex is also available for teachers.
