Octopretzel are five Bay Area musicians who all have extensive experience
working with children. Since 2007 they have played extensively around the Bay Area.
Octopretzel creates music that is truly enjoyable for families…not just kids.
Their music, comprised of original songs as well as tried and true traditional favorites,
is whimsical and fun, and has an underlying sensitivity for nature, feelings and story.
Best described as folk music, it crosses generations and genres, weaving together
styles such as bluegrass, rock and roll, lullabies and even nursery rhymes.
Their shows integrate elements of many cultures such as African drumming,
klezmer fiddling, middle-eastern percussion and singing styles,
and songs with words in Spanish, Hebrew and even Quechua.
