All Around This World’s Caribbean songs for kids introduce your family to so many cultures through interactive fun . . .
All Around This World’s Caribbean season of songs celebrates global music in all its joyful, rhythmic and multi-cultural glory, featuring songs about love and rum-running and goats, a Haitian tune about a frog one-upping a horse, a beautiful Bhojpuri lullaby and dance grooves from Puerto Rican plena to Jamaican ska.
The All Around This World: Caribbean CDs are in the works! Recording has started, and while we can’t confidently predict a release date, we can predict, with confidence that there will be one.
There is so much great music in the Caribbean that we know we’ll never be able to shove it all onto one compact disc. We’ve decided to split the songs onto two, one featuring Caribbean for kids from parts of the region that receive substantial and cultural influence from interaction with the Spanish and French (like Cuba, Puerto Rico and Haiti), the other collecting our songs from the Caribbean nations that have been intertwined with the British and Dutch, such as Jamaica and Trinidad.
