Album Review
Reviewed 2007-05-30
A multilingual collection of animal-themed songs from around the world. Meant for kids, but it’s so wiggly good that it’s fun even for us grown-ups. Shake free your cynicism and sophistication and unleash your inner 6-year old. I liked it all, so there! Now I’m gonna go play!

1. Fun & folksy w/great harp/guitar. Midtempo, in English.
2. Happy/clappy Caribbean counting song.
3. “Old McDonald” in Italian. Upbeat & wacky.
4. Mid/uptempo guitar/vox in sweet South American pop.
5. Lazy midtempo folk w/3 fem voices in English. Sweet.
6. Goldilocks story in a bouncy midtempo guitar/vox folk tale.
7. A Brazilian call-response forro w/a playful sway.
8. Deliciously lazy brassy café sound w/kid vocals. So fun!
9. Sweet & joyful carnival sound - you’ll want to dance.
10. Sorta spoken vocals, piano, mid. Don’t step on a snake, kiddies!
11. Midtempo, bouncy w/a country sound. Warm fex vox.
12. Fun, growly vox. A midtempo New Orleans-based bounce.
13. Great a capella version of “Lion Sleeps”, the original one by LBM.
