Lullabies of the world
Songbook with singalong CD
In collaboration with the European Choral Association – Europa Cantat
With photographs by Steve McCurry, Eve Arnold, Sven Cichowicz and others
Rocking and singing reassure babies and small children - with this ritual millions of mothers, fathers and grandparents worldwide lull their children to sleep. This custom has existed since the earliest days of mankind. "Dorme, dorme, meu menino" is sung in Portugal, "Tuta nana tgu" in Grisons, a small part of Switzerland, "Lala, mtoto lala" in Swahili. This book presents 51 beautiful lullabies from all over the world in their infinite variety. The book includes a singalong CD with the texts read by native speakers. Delightful pictures by famous photographers illustrate the cultural riches of our world.
