Tónagull is a popular family music method developed in Iceland, designed to fit the needs of families with children 0-3 years old. A Polish language version of Tónagull was launched in the fall of 2019. Nearly thirty families registered within just a week. This great community response indicates a need not before detected and an openness in the Polish community for this kind of service. The purpose of the project is to build on a successful method for family music classes and adapt it to the language, culture and traditional music material belonging to the Polish minority in Iceland and to broaden the current state of knowledge in the field of social integration and well-being of migrant families with particular focus on language, identity and parenting cultures.
