R&B Kids' Music / Spanish Language Kids' Music / Russian etc.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
So can we chat about something happier on this forum for this coming weekend?

Namely, I just heard on the kids' music station my mom gets with her cable a reggae kids' song about a mouse in a house and my daughter loved it. She loves jazz and classical music but not rock so much (funny because I love rock!).

What are your favorite non-rock, non-pop kids' artists / albums / collections?

Other than the Sesame Street Disco album (vinyl from my own childhood), They Might Be Giants, and Peter, Paul, and Mommy and one educational tape, we don't have anything for my daughter. But she can totally tell when it's kids music.

What are your suggestions from your cultures? She does like Middle Eastern beats as well as jazz and the blues.

If I say Ulitsa Sezam, does that count as "other than Sesame Street"?

She does loves Ulitsa Sezam songs, though. Aside from that, it's pretty random. She loves the "v lesu rodilas yolichka" song, for example, and some of the Cheburashka songs (especially Goluboi vagon). And then she went through this whole Shanson phase for a while. THAT she gets from dh

LMAO@ Shanson.

And Ulitsa Sezam... okay... it counts. Do you havethe URL? ulitsasezam.ru doesn't work. Mine has totally forgotten Russian now that DH is- well, anyway, I still want her at least to continue her exposure to the sounds constantly. But she loves singing along so we'll see how she does. I should buy the tapes.

I'm not sure if there's an actual Ulitsa sezam site. There are several videos from it posted on youtube, including the theme song which is one of dd's favorites. We have it on DVD--we didn't purchase it in the US, but I'm pretty sure you can order it somewhere There are several US based Russian gift type mail order businesses that carry children's toys and disks. I posted the link to one I like on the Russian Families Thread (at least I think I did). That site was actually started for American families who have adopted children from Russian speaking countries, so it is all kids stuff. I know they have cartoon dvds and music cds (as well as books and toys). See if you can dig up that link--if not I wil try to locate it. We bought dd a talking Cheburashka doll for Christmas from them and it was an easy, pleasant transaction.

I love the Cada Nino album from Tish Hinojosa. Good stuff. The lyrics are in Spanish and English.

Thanks, Earthgirl. Love the quote from your daughter. Mine also worries about the state of the fox in Jemima Puddleduck. "The fox is scared of the dog! Go away, doggy!"

EVC- I remember the thread. I will have to find it...

Mother Goose Rocks!

The Mother Goose Rocks CDs are great! We have Volume 2 and love it! The nursery rhymes are recorded (and changed slightly) to contemporary songs. For example, The Three Little Pigs is a nursery rhyme version of La Vida Loca. (Real contemporary, I know.) Ring Around the Rosie = Christina Aguilera's Genie in a Bottle.

We also love Putumayo CDs. Their reggae CD is one of our favorites.

Ooh, those sound fun. DD is all about the nursery rhymes now.

That's funny. DD also once said the three bears were naughty to wake up Goldilocks.
