OverviewBeautifully recorded lullabies from around the world are sung in the language of origin along with an illustrated bedtime storyÃ¢â‚¬â€in English, Spanish, and FrenchÃ¢â‚¬â€about an imaginary journey to unknown lands. Performers Sylva Balassanian, Mary Fujiwara Burke, Juan Jose Carranza, Hart-Rouge, HÃ¢â‚¬â„¢sao, Paul Kunigis, and Nathalie Picard share their culture in offering lovely, warm lead vocals and harmonies, supported by a highly skilled group of musicians playing more than 30 different instruments. The earth-toned, dreamlike illustrations reflect both the subject and country of origin of each song.
