Our children will live their lives in a world where people from around the globe share each other’s beauty and culture.
This collection of lullabies from around the world will ease your little ones to sleep with gentle lyrics sung in the native tongues of Ireland, Brazil, Wales, Africa, Nova Scotia, Cuba and more.
A musical welcome to a world in which the sweetness of a parent’s love is universal.
The notes include original lyrics and English translations.
From the caressing father-to-child bossa nova song "Pro Nene Nanar (For Baby to Sleep)" and the exquisite Leo Brouwer guitar arrangement of the traditional Afro-Cuban "Drume Negrito" to Pepe Castillo's achingly tender "A Dormir" and "Soneca," a Brazilian spin on "Snow White and the Seven Dwarves," this round-up of simply beautiful lullabies is for little ears, and big ears, too. Lulled and beguiled by singers and vocalists from Africa, Brazil, Cuba, Wales, Ireland and other countries, listeners are offered excerpts from Ellipsis' four previous lullaby releases-"African Lullaby," "Latin Lullaby," "Celtic Lullaby," "Brazilian Lullaby"-in a well-considered sampler of global parental love and notable professional talent. It's worlds away from the stresses and strains of busy modern life, something to treasure in the quiet times. A 2000 Parents' Choice® Gold Award.
