Product Description

Amazon.com

If these truly gorgeous lullabies and songs from all over the world don't soothe the savage beast within your child, nothing will. This hypnotic collection of soft and slow melodies--some ancient, some new--is perfect for lulling a child to sleep or for any evening when you want to escape into a warm bath with candles. Carlos Santana accompanies African singer Angelique Kidjo on the sweet opener, "Naima." Claudia Martinez sings "Arriba Del Cielo (Above the Sky)," a lilting traditional lullaby with roots in the Mexican state of Guerrero. The Letterstick Band, from the small An-Barra clan of Australian Aborigines, performs the moving "Yi-Rrana (Sunset)." One favorite is "Lá Vai Alguém (There Goes Someone)," a hot-summer-night-sounding lullaby sung in velvety tones by Virginia Rosa. Another lovely addition is Kanji Yano of the Sanshin Café Orchestra playing a generations-old lullaby on a traditional stringed instrument from Okinawa called the sanshin. The liner notes, written in English, Spanish, French, and Dutch, provide kid-friendly facts about the countries of origin. A portion of the proceeds are donated to the Putumayo Cross-Cultural Initiative, a non-profit organization that uses the power of world music and the arts to inspire children to connect with diverse cultures. Vive Dreamland! --Karin Snelson

I play this CD for my kids as they fall asleep every night.
Seattle reader
The music is interesting to listen to, but soothing and slow enough that it really helps her relax and drift off to sleep.
LAGAR
The music is lush and soothing, with beautiful songs in several languages.

And you thought you were doomed to listen to those crummy fake vibraphone/music box sounds forever now that you are a parent? Thank you, Putumayo for not insulting our intelligence. These beautiful songs will provide your child with an enriching listening experience, and you will love them too. My favorite is the South African "Thula Mama" and I find myself singing it to my little one often.

This is one of two lullaby CDs that our almost-3-year-old listens to at bedtime. We switch from one to the other now and then, just for variety. The music is lush and soothing, with beautiful songs in several languages. It helps my daughter get to sleep, but also the grown-ups can listen to it repeatedly without being driven crazy. Heck, if I were having trouble getting to sleep I might try this CD myself.

Of the eight or so lullaby albums I play during my daughter's bedtime, "Dreamland" is by far my favorite. The collection is a wonderful mix of lullabies from all over the world; I found myself looking forward to putting my daughter to bed just so I could listen to this CD. Eventually, I had to add it to my iPod for my own relaxation! The melodies are so beautiful and haunting, I find myself humming them unexpectedly. This is the must-have album for a lullaby collection, and the perfect gift for new parents.

Another gorgeous collection from Putumayo which has its intended effect on our 9 month-old whether in the car or at home, yet is wonderful listening for the parents. Each track is beautiful but standouts for me are the opener with Carlos Santana guesting and the haunting Teresa Doyle lullaby.

I always thought lullabies were meant for babies or children at best. One listen to this cd and my ideas were changed. Putumayo has done it again! From world renown Angelique Kidjo to less known Tanja Solnik, the cd is one of soothing sounds. If you are stressed, take a listen, and let the lullabies take you away. Even if you aren't sleepy, trust me, the calming effects will help even the most high strung person.

Putumayo produced CDs is the only music I have ever bought without knowing it first and I have never been disappointed. This is a gorgeous collection which my children listen to at night but which can also be enjoyed by everybody of all ages at any time of the day! We also recommend Asian Dreamland which is just lovely and even more gentle and dreamy.Putumayo Kids Presents: Asian Dreamland

This CD was a lovely gift, given to us by a friend of a friend, who had never met me or my beautiful daughter, yet had given us one of our most treasured "baby items" to date. Every song on the cd is soft and soothing. My husband and I love the multicultural aspect of the compilation and our two month old baby falls asleep within minutes of hearing notes from any of the songs. The songs are magical and so are their effects.

We first learned of this CD by borrowing from the library and now we have bought it. The selection of music is beatiful, our daughter loves to listen to it at night before going to bed. Our favorite song is the one is Spanish from Mexico.
