Independent Publishing Group
Sung in Portuguese, these 30 lullabies and nursery rhymes from Brazil and Portugal invites children on an authentic musical journey exploring the strong cultural ties that bind the two countries. Crossing the Atlantic from Porto to Rio, this musical collection presents the rich common heritage of songs about everyday life, work and play, and courtship and love. The lyrics are presented in Portuguese and translated into English, followed by notes on the origin and cultural context of each song. The accompanying CD features traditional songs that blend samba, modinha, fandango, and bossa nova, and are performed by a group of women, men, and children. The use of several indigenous acoustic instruments further makes this an uplifting, enchanting production that captures the meeting of rich and diverse styles.
