Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Amazon.com

As with other Ellipsis Arts releases, African Lullaby is more than a stellar music collection. Its delightful liner notes provide ample context for these "love songs for children" and the collection's innovative earth-friendly packaging is a work of art unto itself. Commencing with the bewitching Zulu harmonies of Ladysmith Black Mambazo, "Thula Mtwana" sets the tone, creating an atmosphere of warmth, safety, and peace, and is followed by a baker's dozen that reflect the gentle rhythms of an abundantly diverse continent. "Kounandu Deni" marries the dancing melody of Malian guitar and African harp with lyrics of paternal providence. Broadway's Sarafina! and The Lion King cast member Ntomb'khona Dlamini wails soulfully on "Thula Thula," and "Chitsidzo" is a mystical reverie of parental love and spousal longing accompanied by the intense beauty of a mbira (thumb piano). Standing head and shoulders above others in its class, African Lullaby is testimony to the awesome power of music. --Paige La Grone

The songs are so sweet, melodic and very catchy to sing along.

I highly recommend this CD for anyone, not just as a lullaby for children.

I wanted to give my three children (6, 5, and 3) a taste of African music and this cd was quite the find! They love it and request it often.

We bought this CD for our children, but we probably enjoy listening to it more than they do! The tunes on this enchanting CD have a way of soothing, calming, and relaxing you. It's like being cradled and gently rocked in loving arms, but in a musical way. We love it...I recommend it for Moms and Dads and, oh yeah, of course the kids!

Gorgeous! Great alternatives to "When the Bough Breaks". An excellent addition to any collection, even if you don't have a kid!

this is indeed very relaxing, (although you can tap your toes a bit!) and ageless. if most silly childrens' cds annoy you, you definitely can't say that about this album. i really like it!

Wonderfully relaxing music with sounds from all over the African continent. Whenever my husband plays this CD for our daughter, they both fall asleep.

we played this album for my husband's zimbabwean mother and she burst into tears when she heard "thula thula," which she used to sing to him when he was a baby.

our daughter loves this album and i even listen to it in the car when i'm driving around by myself. the songs are sometimes haunting and always soothing.

i highly recommend this collection for discriminating parents and children who are tired of the typical "children's music."

This CD was given to my son for his first birthday. He still loves it now 2 and 1/2 years later. It's also works to soothe our new baby ( 3mos) who cries during car rides. I find the gentle, peaceful songs to be calming for me as well after a long day, and even after almost 3 years, I love to listen to it. I highly recommend this album.
