A musical tale with three double basses and a harp. Together with narrator Ida Lod, we hear the exciting, magical tale of how the elephant got its trunk.
The story is loosely based on Rudyard Kipling’s How the Elephant Got His Trunk, and the double basses and harp are particularly well-suited here. The music is composed by Mats Nilsson, double bassist with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra.The elephant travels all over Africa and meets remarkable figures.
