DESCRIPTION

This Parents' Choice Gold Award-winning collection of lullabies reflects the warmth, musical richness, and soothing rhythms of the African continent. It is a gathering of talented singers and musicians whose gifts are recognized internationally. Young and old ears will delight in the magical sounds of mbira, balaphone, kora, a capella vocals, guitar, bamboo flutes, dundun, and talking drum.

The lyrics sing of folklore, family, and village life in the traditional languages of the Ivory Coast, Mali, Senegal, Zimbabwe, Uganda, Guinea, Kenya, Nigeria, Zambia, and South Africa. They communicate the love that these African artists feel for children and humankind—a love that transcends language.

Features Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Ayub Ogada, Samite, Stella Rambisai Chiweshe, and more. Liner notes include original lyrics and English translations.

Review for African Lullaby

The songs are lovely and serene, and the musicianship is of a very high quality. It's excellent in all respects. I'm enjoying it very much because it's just the quiet, relaxing material I was looking for.

Review for African Lullaby

I love it, very different to any music I have and I think it would be a great way for a child to fall asleep to. it is happy, fun and uplifting music, at the same time the music seems to encompass being nurtured too.

Review for African Lullaby

Very nice and comforting. The performers are often slightly off-tune, which should bother only sensitive ears like mine, but I don't mind so much because most of the interpretations appeal to me anyway.
