Synopsis

Amazon.com
El Lobo, a perfect companion disc to the Clancy Children's So Early in the Morning: Irish Children's Songs, Rhymes, & Games, is a joyful collection of tunes and playground games sung and chanted by Latin American children. Mostly a cappella, the ditties are often punctuated by laughter and handclaps and the universal singsongy rise and fall of wee voices. While the Spanish, Indian, and African influences on colorful Latin American culture are undeniable and give the songs a distinct ethnicity, what is perhaps most striking is the commonality they share with children's music the world over. Young Americans will find that "Liron, Liron" is not too different from "Miss Mary Mac," nor is "El Patio de Mi Casa" far removed from "Say, Say, Oh Playmate" or the many versions of "Miss Susie Had a Baby." --Paige La Grone
