Description

A powerful polyrhythmic journey around West, Central and Southern Africa, taking you on a musical tour from Cape Verde to Nigeria, the DRC to the Cape.

Note

All Around This World: Africa (West, Central and South) crisscrosses this most musical of all continents, inviting you on a journey from Cape Verde to South Africa, with countries like Guinea, Ghana, Nigeria, the Congo and Zimbabwe in between. There is Cape Verdean morna. There is Nigerian fuji. There is Congolese soukous, South African mbaqanga and Malagasy selegy. And, of course, what would a CD of including West African music possibly be without Afrobeat?

Founded by world traveling music teacher Jay Sand, All Around This World is an educational project that aims to make the world a little smaller while expanding kids’ horizons as they actively engage with international music.

All Around This World breaks new ground in global education as it introduces children to cultures through music in a highly engaging, complete participatory way. According to Jay, “Teachers and parents know that introducing multicultural music is important, but perhaps they only get as far as hosting an international food day or a special holiday. We use music to crack the code, translating really honest and important elements of culture into educational experiences that actively resonate with kids.”
The original Africa classroom edition won a 2015 Recommended Award from Parents’ Choice, where the reviewer notes that, “applause is deserved for this well researched and produced recording and introduction to the diverse sounds and joys of African music.”

All Around This World: Africa (West, Central and South) stands alone as a 17 track digital release but is also available as one of two physical CDs in the All Around This World: Africa double disc set. All Around This World: Africa is just one installment in a series of family-friendly world music albums, following the release of Latin America. All Around This World: South and Central Asia is next. As Cool Mom Picks notes, “for any family who just wants to expose their kids to awesome world music, the albums stand on their own.”
