Putumayo Kids: Kids World Party...Review & Giveaway!

The kids and I LOVE to get down to a little music.  Whether it be at home or in the car, we are always looking for new music to sing/dance and bee-bop along to.  I have one to tell you about today that has us singing/dancing and happily bee-bopping along in English as well as a bunch of other languages.  Here is the scoop...

Putumayo Kids presents Kids World Party, a global medley of fun tunes from Trinidad to South Africa. Kids World Party marks a special partnership with Amnesty International, with 50c US from the sale of each CD going to the Nobel Peace Prize-winning organization in commemoration of its 50th anniversary and in support of its work to promote and protect human rights worldwide.

With the release of World Playground in 1999, 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 an 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 harmonies of their music, and delights listeners with "Sanalwami." Trinidadian children's musician Asheba contributes the calypso-infused "Recess Time."

Swiss singer Famara celebrates East African life in Swahili on "Mambo Saana." Hawaiian singer SolannaBalentes, an all-female Sardinian group, contributes the playful dance tune "Cixiri" (Chickpeas), while France's Pakita charms with "Préparons-nous pour la fête" (Let's Get Ready for the Party). Representing Latin America is Mexican children's group Monedita de Oro with "Nadie." The infectious "Afro-Cuban Funk" of Cuban-American band PALO! is heard on their song "Quimbombó" (Okra). pays a reggae tribute to the childhood favorite "Oompa Loompa."

Also featured on Kids World Party is bilingual (English-French) singer Will Stroet, an award-winning Canadian musician whose song "Le boogie à vélo" tells children that you can boogie even while riding a bike safely. U.S. musicians Tom Freund and Friends performs the participatory song "Freezedance" and fellow American Eric Bibb rounds out the collection with Jackie Wilson's classic soul tune "Higher and Higher."

How fun does this one sound??  Well, it really is!  I love to expose the kids to different varieties of music and this one introduces so many styles on on CD.  We don't always understand the words but, as we hum along, it just goes to show that music is wonderful in ANY language.  We are all particularly fond of the Oompa Loompa song as well as Recess Time but, to be honest, all the songs offer something fun and different for our listening enjoyment.  This CD will be released on June 28th and can be purchased on teh Putumayo Kids website.
