For four decades, children’s troubadour Raffi has been the world’s best‐selling and most influential children’s entertainer, delighting successive generations of kids and their parents with his playful personality and irresistibly infectious songs.
Owl Singalong is the latest masterful children s recording from Raffi, featuring 16 new songs incorporating a range of styles and a variety of instruments including strings, horns and ukulele. Raffi entertains his young fans with exuberant, infectious new tunes such as ‘More We Sing Together’ and ‘Dog on the Bus,’ sings in Spanish on ‘Somos El Barco’ and in French on ‘Dans La Forêt Lointaine.’ He pays tribute to the late folk‐music icon Pete Seeger with ‘Garden Song’ and a rollicking spoken‐word rendition of the beloved African folk tale ‘Abiyoyo.’ The children’s voices on this album are a total delight.
Standout songs include the title track ‘Owl Singalong’ which was inspired by the owls near Raffi’s home on Salt Spring Island in Canada, and ‘Green Dream,’ a joyous, hopeful anthem he hopes will inspire all the world’s children and families.
Owl Singalong continues the Raffi tradition of embodying all of the musical and personal qualities that have long established him as a beloved and trusted icon for young listeners.
