The African Alphabet CD. We watched the video of one of their songs on their site, and we were hooked...Mommy was looking online for some catchy kids' music to help me learn my ABCs, and up came a link to
Here is the description on their website:
“The African Alphabet” CD contains 13 fun sing-along songs for kids of all ages. The songs are an A to Z of things African and are composed in vibrant African styles ranging from Afro-Jazz, Afro-fusion, Afro-pop, to more traditional sounds and a whole lot more!
Aside from teaching the Alphabet in a novel way, the CD exposes kids to wonderful African music and culture where they will get to learn about Ululating, Soweto, Yebo, Impis, Marimbas and so much more.
The CD is also "Adult friendly" (No purple dinosaurs were used in the making of this CD!)
A big thanks to Graeme Sacks and the folks at African ABC for donating this CD for Operation Love Zimbabwe. They've got a copy reserved for one lucky commenter!
