Album Notes
- Parents Choice Recommended 2008 -

In her first children’s album, Maria Jameau displays a graceful empathy for sounds, rhythms, and music that are just right for young to older children. World Family Folk Celebration features a multicultural mix of folk favorites which draw from a wide range of traditions including West Indies (“Tingalayo”), Ghana (“Fi Ka Netso/ Mano Efe Dusi Me”), French (“Au Claire de la Lune”), Yugoslavia (“Sto Mi e Milo”), Korea (“Arirang”), and Mexico (“De Colores”), among others. Her arrangements are fresh and lively, backed by professional World musicians such as David Darling (Paul Winter Consort), Paul McCandless (Bela Fleck and Flecktones) and the superb percussion of Kendrick Freeman (Joe Craven Trio).

At the center is Jameau’s gorgeous voice, which is equally at home with American standards like “Oh Susannah” as it is with traditional South African songs such as “The Lion Sleeps Tonight.” As an added treat, her own musically talented daughters Ismena and Lucia Jameau contribute some lovely backing and chorus singing. Jameau’s love and enthusiasm for the music come shining through on every track as she celebrates both musical and cultural diversity.
