Take an imaginary journey to unknown lands as you listen to lullabies from around the world (China, Senegal, Haiti, Mexico, Egypt…) The earth-toned, dreamlike illustrations reflect both the subject and country of origin of the music.
The narrated story is followed by recordings of the songs “Close Your Eyes” (China) and “Nadiara” (Senegal).
Patrick Lacoursière was an actor, producer and journalist in Western Canada before writing the award-winning collection Dream Songs Night Songs.
Sylvie Bourbonnière has seen her works used by The Wall Street Journal, The Chicago Tribune and People Magazine. She has also illustrated several children’s books including Tales from the Isle of Spice and Contes d’Afrique.
