As with other Ellipsis Arts releases, African Lullaby is more than a stellar music collection. Its delightful liner notes provide ample context for these "love songs for children" and the collection's innovative earth-friendly packaging is a work of art unto itself. Commencing with the bewitching Zulu harmonies of Ladysmith Black Mambazo, "Thula Mtwana" sets the tone, creating an atmosphere of warmth, safety, and peace, and is followed by a baker's dozen that reflect the gentle rhythms of an abundantly diverse continent. "Kounandu Deni" marries the dancing melody of Malian guitar and African harp with lyrics of paternal providence. Broadway's Sarafina! and The Lion King cast member Ntomb'khona Dlamini wails soulfully on "Thula Thula," and "Chitsidzo" is a mystical reverie of parental love and spousal longing accompanied by the intense beauty of a mbira (thumb piano). Standing head and shoulders above others in its class, African Lullaby is testimony to the awesome power of music. --Paige La Grone

My new born baby boy drifts of peacefully whenever we put on this CD. It is great for those stressful times when you need to remember how relaxed life was when you were a little'un.

I have this cd in the car and it tends to keep things nice and calm, even helps to calm me in the traffic! I end up listening to it a lot but it never grates on me or bores me which is quite impressed. I know that a standard lullaby cd would be very annoying on constantly in the car but I don't mind this and it does calm the babies too. Well worth getting.

I highly recommend this lullaby CD. Beautiful in the sheer simplicity of the instruments and vocals; a collection of some of Africa's finest musicians. The rhythms are so easy to rock to. My 6 week old son is always asleep by the third or fourth track.

I have no idea how I found this cd on amazon but it was the reviews that dared me to spend the money and it's not a cheap cd so I had high hopes for it.

My boy is now 9 months. He whinges in his buggy at nap time and then I play this cd. Mostly track 6 and 7 conk him. Its a wonderful cd, I am not in love with ALL the tracks but given how different this cd is to any music I've ever been used to myself, well I'm impressed to have come to love it as much as I do, as WE do!!!

Treat your child to this cd. I am so glad I did. I leave it on repeat and it's very very soothing to him. Well worth the money

it took me ages to decide on this cd and bought it based on all the wonderful reviews written about it. It is ok, very different but unfortunately my little one is not fussed about it and my husband is not too keen. Maybe she will grow to like it

This was an excellent buy! The MP3 downloaded instantly at a moment when we really needed it. My toddler seems to find the music very relaxing and we often put it on if it seems like he is struggling to get to sleep, with great effect.

I really like this lullabies. They really calm you down. They suitable for small babies to put them to sleep and adults if they want something relaxing.
