Product Description

In 1999, with the release of World Playground, Putumayo Kids established its children s music collections as passports to learning about the world s cultures. Kids World Party marks a return to these global roots with 12 fun, danceable songs accompanied by a multilingual (English, Spanish, French, German), child-friendly booklet that explores how children worldwide celebrate special occasions. The CD comes enclosed in a new eco-friendly package that uses no plastic.

Artists featured on Kids World Party include famed Indian pop and Bollywood singer Lucky Ali, who contributes Kitni Haseen Zindagi, a song that celebrates life. South Africa s Sharon Katz and The Peace Train, whom Nelson Mandela appointed as a Cultural Ambassador of the nation, has thrilled international audiences with the beats and har¬monies of their music, and delights listeners with Sanalwami. Trinidadian children s musician Asheba, whose songs are featured on four other Putumayo Kids collections, contributes the calypso-infused Recess Time.

Swiss singer Famara celebrates East African life in Swahili on Mambo Saana. Hawaiian singer Solanna pays a reg¬gae tribute to Willy Wonka in Oompa Loompa. Italy s Balentes, an all-female Sardinian group, contributes the play¬ful dance tune Cixiri (Chickpeas), while France s Pakita charms with Préparon-nous pour Faire la Fête (Let s Get Ready to Party). Representing Latin America is Mexican children s group Monedita de Oro with Nadie. The infec¬tious Afro-Cuban funk of Cuban-American band PALO! is heard on their song Quimbombó (Okra).

Also featured on Kids World Party is bilingual (English-French) singer Will Stroet, an award-winning Canadian musi¬cian whose song Le boogie à vélo tells children that you can boogie even while riding a bike safely. American musicians Tom Freund and Friends invite kids to join in a Freezedance and fellow American Eric Bibb rounds out the col¬lection with Jackie Wilson s classic soul tune Higher and Higher.

Kids World Party also marks the start of a special partnership with Amnesty International. 50¢ U.S. from the sale of each CD will go to the Nobel Peace Prize-winning organization in com¬memoration of its 50th anniversary and in support of its work to promote and protect human rights worldwide.

Review

Putumayo Kids continues to be a reliable source for scooping up a taste of the world music smorgasbord for kids and Kids World Party is another great addition to its library. --Fred Koch, Chicago Parent Magazine, June 2011

From all the Putumayo CDs (and they offer, at least to my and my baby's ears, wonderful music) this one is the weakest in terms of "introducing people to the music of world cultures." The songs come from musicians all over the world, however, they sound like they all come from the same studio, no matter what language they sing. It's a Kid's World Party (emphasis on 'Party') selection, and this apparently means that every song needs the same kind of hit parade, techno-ish sounding beat. The result is that the songs sound rather similar (in terms of beat) and the culturally unique sound is somewhat lost. It seems like World Music party music has to cater to Western ears to be considered 'party' music. It all sounds rather streamlined. My baby, who looooves African Playground, World Playground and Dreamland, gets fussy when I turn on this CD, she doesn't like it. I wish I could have listened to the songs before purchasing the CD.

Purchased this for My Grandson who is 6. He loves all sorts of music from different countries. It was his thing and he loves it! But he is also into geography and where this is and that is and what music is from that area. It was his gift and he loves it!

We use this at work, working with kids. While it's not as diverse as some of the other Putumayo cds, it's still pretty good. I admit that I didn't like it when I first listened to it, but I now enjoy it quite a bit. To say it's worthless is disingenuous. Because it is worth something, quite a bit in my opinion. The oompa loompa song has since become one of my favorites.

Love Putumayo! we have nearly 20 of their childrens cd's, they never disappoint. We've been able to introduce our children to a world of different cultures through their music and rhythm. Fun never ends with these collections!

The Putumayo Music for kids is one source I can always go to and know that it will be an experience that my children will enjoy. Singins the songs, moving or dancing to the music, bouncing a baby on your knee, these are all things you can do with this cd! For teachers, it's an excellent resource to add to your professional library.

I love these CD's. I bought many of the Putumayo Kids CD's for my grandson as he loves them and so does my daughter. She said she could listen to these without going crazy as they enjoyable for both children and adults.
