Lullabies are sung to children the world over and form a much-loved part of all our lives; we hear them as babies and in turn sing them to our children as we become parents. Celebrate this joyous legacy while exploring the soothing melodies and gentle rhythms of lullabies from around the world. The album features world and folk music stars such as Omara Portuondo, Ali Farka Touré & Toumani Diabaté and Chava Alberstein.

Bonus CD: The Black Umfolosi 5 ? 'Khuluma Lami (Talk To Me)'
Hailing from Zimbabwe, a cappella and dance group Black Umfolosi 5 present a beautiful album full of rich harmonies and intricate rhythms. Named after the Umfolozi Omnyama River in South Africa, to where their ancestors can be traced, the group's crystal-clear harmonies are inspired by the traditional songs of their native southern Africa and performed with an unrivalled beauty and enthusiasm. These rich vocal traditions provide a calm and soothing listening experience, and serve as the perfect lullaby.
