BAM: Babies’ Adventures in Music

A music performance project that is designed to enchant and entertain babies from 0 – 18 months. Described by audiences as ‘magical’, ‘playful’ and ‘mesmerising’ - with parents often delighted that the shows are as much for them as they are for their little ones.

Who are we?

BAM performances are led by singer and harpist Sam Frankie Fox and multi-instrumentalist Ricardo Santos Rocha and the productions are supported by Curiosity Productions. Sam and Ricardo are very warm hosts as well as skilful musicians and Early Years specialists. Their combined experience and playful personalities ensure that events have an inviting, stimulating and relaxed atmosphere.

Originally from Wales and Portugal, the BAM artistic directors are based in the Midlands and work locally, nationally and internationally. They love to perform music from across the globe, so every performance includes a rich variety of songs from different cultures (in a range of languages) and unusual and exciting instruments.

Sam Frankie Fox
Artistic Director / Performer

Sam combines acrobatic vocals with theatrical, playful flair. Her blue harp has become a signature of BAM performances live and online.

“I love to sing in different languages and play with the full range of my voice”

Ricardo Santos Rocha
Artistic Director / Performer

Ricardo is a sound explorer originally from Portugal. His favourite instrument is the diatonic accordion, but he plays a vast array of musical machinery.

“You’ll usually find me either playing an instrument, photographing wildlife or cooking up a Portuguese feast”

Jenny Smith & Curiosity Productions

Jenny is Artistic Director and founder of Curiosity Productions. She initially attended BAM concerts as a punter, and had such a good time she jumped on board to help strategically extend the project’s reach and audience base.

Jenny loves dancing, although it’s usually in the kitchen with her toddler rather than a dance floor these days.
