Product Description & Reviews

Caribean Voyage - Brown Girl In The Ring - Cd This collection of children's song-games from the Caribbean marks a high point in the annals of field recordings. Alan Lomax, who has traveled from work fields to prisons to front porches in order to best capture the spirit of folk music, caught these songs in fine fashion, even with the limitations of his audio equipment. The title track, recorded twice at different tempos, is robust and widely familiar to kids as both a game and a song on Smilin' Island of Song, a winning kids' recording by Cedella Marley Booker (Bob Marley's mother). There are dozens of tracks on the CD, each of which conveys the spirit of sing-along play in numerous manifestations. Kids thrill at the sound of their distant peers' voices, and Brown Girl makes an excellent educational tool for those interested in international cultures and a fun play tool for those interested in.... playing. --Andrew Bartlett
