Children of the wind, an English adaptation of Vindens barn, was commissioned by The Swedish Children’s and Youth’s Choir Association, UNGiKÖR, 2008. Composed for 2-parts children’s choir, soprano saxophone, piano and percussion.

Children of the wind was created to inspire a sense of freedom. To make you feel the wind in your hair, see the majesty of high mountains or the greatness of the oceans. To return to places where life can be simple and authentic.
Having grown up in the far north of Sweden, above the Arctic circle, living close to nature with long snowy winters and that very special Nordic light, this piece is inspired by the games that children play outdoors – catching snowflakes, playing hide-and-seek in harmony with the elements. Who can better speak the language of snowflakes and whisper secrets to the wind than the children of the earth? The children are our future, and every child should in his or her own environment have the right to explore this kind of freedom.
The song is also inspired by the Sami cultural expression known as Yoyk. – Susanna Lindmark

Children of the wind är en sång om längtan efter att ta fram frihetens vingar och flyga iväg! Att känna vinden blåsa i håret, att se ut över vita vidder eller över ett glittrande hav, platser där livet kan fylla oss med energi och ny kraft.
Och vem kan bättre tala snöflingors språk och viska hemligheter med vinden än
barnen?
Vi är alla vindens barn. Vi är alla barn av den stora friheten.” – Susanna Lindmark
