A great and happy music campaign poster from the 1960s.
This colorful poster was made in order to get children to play and sing music (Musik skal der til - syng og spil selv).
Many different posters has been made bearing the title "Musik skal der til - Spil Selv" (There must be music - Play it yourself or Music is need/wanted - play music yourself). I believe the poster advertises a campaign along with exhibitions to encourage kids to play music in the 1950s and 1960s. As mentioned many posters has been produced in different years, with different motifs and by different artists (among them Bjørn Wiinblad and Otto Nielsen) which states that playing music is a quite important matter.
Because the music campaign was aimed at kids the poster always came out very colorful and friendly looking. This slightly abstract poster is true to that legacy and shows (what I believe) is a bass and apparently it is played outdoor as the artwork in the bottom of the poster look like grass and water.
Thanks for watching and please let me know if you have any questions.
