Putumayo Kids World Party Music CD
Putumayo Kids World Party is a global medley of fun tunes from Trinidad to South Africa. Kids World Party marks a special partnership with Amnesty International, with 7% of Putumayo’s proceeds 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 Solanna pays a reggae tribute to the childhood favorite "Oompa Loompa." Italy's Balentes, 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).
Also featured on Putumayo 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."
