Marjo Smolander ja Karoliina Halsti-Ndiaye are pioneers in children’s culture in Wolof. In 2015 they started a Wolof language music play-school for the local Finnish-Senegalese children in Helsinki, Finland. It was based on the format of pre-school music education pedagogy which is used in Finland. During the play-school lessons children learn Wolof language and culture. The purpose of the lessons is to keep up Wolof language and the Senegalese home culture of the children living in Finland.
