African Lullaby is a charming collection of children's music warmed by Africa's rich musical heritage. The folklore and family life in regions like the Ivory Coast, Mali, Senegal, Zimbabwe, Uganda, Guinea, Kenya, Nigeria, Zambia, and South Africa are reflected in the lullabies' lyrics, as traditional instruments such as the kora, mbira, balaphone, dundun, bamboo flute, talking drum, and guitar heighten the album's authenticity. Stars of the African music scene like Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Ayub Ogada and Stella Chiweshe are just a few of the performers contributing to African Lullaby, a distinctive and worthwhile collection for world music fans and children alike. ~ Heather Phares
