All Around This World’s Eastern European songs for kids introduce your family to many cultures through interactive fun . . .
All Around This World’s Eastern European season of songs presents music from the region in all its bold and brassy complexity., from a Serbian song about the grandeur of snow to a Ukrainian homage to spring, from an asymmetrical Bulgarian song about peppers to a very symmetrical Lithuanian chant about about limes.
In classes we sing wedding songs from Estonia to Albania and beyond, imitate horns and accordions and heartfelt violins . . . we enjoy all the good stuff that draws on a thousand years of Eastern European hardship and hope, making us weep and at the same time as as we dance.

We’re planning to record so many great songs for the All Around This World: Eastern Europe and the Baltics CD project that we know they won’t all fit on one CD. Splitting our Eastern European songs for kids into two discs will give us a chance to focus Volume 1 on songs from the northern part of Eastern Europe (Russia, the Baltics, Hungary/Czech Republic, etc.) and a second volume on songs and fascinating rhythms from the Balkans, Romanian an Bulgaria.
PRODUCER: Russian Balalaika and “gypsy guitar” master Alex Sinavski will produce All Around This World: Eastern Europe and the Baltics. Since arriving to the U.S. from St. Petersburg, Russia, in 1992, Alex has become of America’s most popular balalaika performers and teachers. In addition to his work with the Russian-American ensemble Barynya, which describes itself as “the best and biggest Russian dance and music ensemble outside of Russia,” Alex has released several of his own popular CDs of Eastern European music and his become one of You Tube’s most-viewed balalaika players of all time. All Around This World is looking forward to working with Alex to make magical Eastern European songs for kids. See Alex perform “The Moon is Shining” on YouTube. Learn more about Alex.
