This storybook with CD offers a 30-song anthology performed in Arabic and Berber, and is a grand achievement in it’s eclectic selection of melodies. Discover a North African journey of traditional music from Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia. Each piece tells a tale of community while teaching children about values, nature and provision. The range of sounds cross the Sahara Desert and move through the Atlas Mountains, on to the Mediterranean Sea. The voices of women, men and children can be heard alongside the sounds of indigenous instruments. Original lyrics are printed in Arabic and translated into English, transcribed in the original Roman characters. Descriptions of each song’s origin and cultural context are included.

This particular book and CD are absolutely beautiful! ABCD DIARIES
