Music and kids
Jill U Adams, describes her own experience when her infant daughter is administered an immunization shot in the doctor’s office. Her 2-year-old-son, worried, began singing the infant’s favorite song and that worked keeping the infant smiling. It turns out that there’s science to support the actions. A growing body of research shows what many parents know instinctively: Music is an effective way to distract young children from painful medical procedures.
Not just any music will do the trick. The purpose is to distract rather than soothe, a researcher explains, and booming, complicated music is most effective at this. Other useful techniques include storytelling, guided imagery (talking to kids about a special place or event), blowing soap bubbles and, not surprisingly, tablet games. Sipping sugar water, sitting in parents’ laps and deep breathing can also help mitigate children’s pain in the doctor’s office or the emergency room.

We would like to set up kids workshop to popularize both talents and Odia music contents. Two examples are presented here. The first example is the Pelican Group and the second one is Big Shots several times highlighted on media. The first group performed recently (January 20, 2016) on the Trump Inauguration Ball night.
