Putumayo are the masters in choosing fun world music for children, featuring singers and musicians from around the world.

The “World Playground” music CD includes one of Putumayo’s favorite singers - Nazaré Pereira. Her fun song “Bonjour Pra Você” is full of fun mixups of language, as this Brazilian tries to speak a bit of French across an Amazon border. Even if they don’t know the words, your kids will feel this fun mixup story through the lively music. Manu Chao’s music is not usually associated with children. So trust Putumayo to have found his one song that is just perfect fun for kids - “Bongo Bong”. The lyrics and upbeat rhythm will transport your kids and even you to the jungle to be a carefree happy monkey bongo drum player. Australians will be delighted to hear their unofficial national anthem “Walting Matilda” sung in an Australian Aboriginal language by the distinctly Aboriginal voice of Trevor Adamson. Even non-Greek kids will find themselves singing “tiki tiki tak” in the “Tik Tik Tak” song. Near the end of the CD is a quiet beautiful touching song about the Ethiopian Jewish Exodus of 1991. Kids will find the children’s choir singing beautiful, while the poetic touching lyrics about immigration and longing may even bring a tear to your eyes.

With “World Playground 2”, Putumayo continues showcasing the best music that the world has to offer children. There’s a reggae version of “Old MacDonald has a Farm” from Trinidad. It has been said that the song “La Marmotteuse” from Acadian Canada is worth the price of a CD alone. Our kids beg to play that song, and we get out the pots and pans and start banging them. However, our playing of these kitchen utensils is nothing compared to the masterful musicianship of this Acadian Canadian band “Barachois” playing these very same “instruments” accompanied by a lively fiddle. In our house, the joyous dancing continues with “A Mover La Colita” (“Move Your Little Tail”) from Colombia - a great example of Latin American dance music for kids. This CD ends with a smooth dance song from the South African queen of African music - Miriam Makeba. Her song “Pata Pata 2000” includes that sound that actually doesn’t exist as a consonent or vowel in the English language - the tongue click!

And when you’re trying to get your little ones to bed, put on “Dreamland - World Lullabies and Soothing Songs” from Putumayo. The CD opens with Angelique Kidjo, that diminutive powerful singer from Benin, singing a lullaby she wrote for her own child, sung in her native African tongue. Next is a delicate, guitar-string-plucking lullaby from Madagascar. Then, hauntingly beautiful Celtic strains from a long-forgotten Scottish aire that was rediscovered by the descendant of a Scottish immigrant on Canada’s Prince Edward Island - Teresa Doyle. A smooth lulling South African lullaby - “Thula Mama” - sung by Sibongile Khumalo. Another gift to Australians - “Yi-Rrana” - sung in an Australian Aboriginal language. There's the quietly clinking Asian “Cradle Song” from the Okinawa island of Japan, a reflection of a unique little-known culture. The quietly haunting flowing harp and pan-pipe of a traditional Sephardic Jewish lullaby transported to Brazil. Every song on this CD is a beautiful, distinct gem. However, these songs all share the common unifying characteristic of lullabying children to sleep for generations past and generations to come.

Ricardo Cobo is one of the world’s finest classical guitarists, and the music CD “Guitar Lullaby” is a perfect masterpiece. Many of the world’s finest guitars were auditioned for this CD, so as to arrive at an impeccably intimite sound. Listening to this CD makes you feel like Ricardo is at the foot of your warm cosy bed playing calming magical guitar lullabies, and you are a contented 5 year old whose busy day is done and now is delighting in being lullabied to dreamland. This CD cleverly starts with quietly playful melodies, and rhythmically progresses to slower, wispy, dreamier sleep tunes. The wordless songs chosen are from around the world, some familiar, some less so. But soon you and your kids will find that this CD will become as familiar and soothing as the bedroom decor.
