The accompanying CD features 29 songs from 10 countries -- including Rwanda, the Ivory Coast, and Senegal -- each one unique in language and sound, recorded with indigenous instruments and exquisitely performed by women, men, and children. This delightful, enchanting production captures the staccato rhythm of the children's rhymes and the poetry of the language as well as a sense of the heritage and tradition of each culture"--Back cover
