Latin Lullaby These new and classic lullabies from Mexico, Brazil, Spain, Puerto Rico, Venezuela, Cuba and Argentina will ease your little ones to sleep. Their romantic, mystical, and playful nature reflect an essential part of the Latin soul. From simple whimsical songs passed down from mother to mother in the oral tradition, to virtuostic performances of the classics by Bola Denieve and Atahualpa Yupanqui, these cradle songs contain the styles and influences that have made Latin music the vibrant, ever-evolving phenomenon that it is today.

"I love this CD. I own several CDs of Lullabies in Spanish, and I prefer this one since its songs are not over-arranged. It is very soothing and beautiful, so it fits its purpose better than a more jazzed-up performance. I can get my two year old to go to sleep quickly, and these days she is very reluctant to go to bed at night. I especially like the lullabies that are sung by their composers and original interpreters. The notes in the insert are informative. They include the lirics (I was able to sing "drume negrita" to my child for the first time. -- Although I own a version sung by Mercedes Sosa, I had been unable to understand all of the words). The notes bring up the problems the compilers had in finding traditional lullabies in Spanish. I felt frustrated when searching for lullabies, whether sung, or written down. Especially scarce are lullabies with musical notation. However, I think it's worthwhile to continue to search for more lullabies in Spanish. I would like to pass them down to my children. It seems that some of the traditional lullabies may not have been recorded but may still be found in written sources. Certainly if one can take into account traditional Christmas Carols in the form of a lullaby (like "A la nanita nana"), which seems to be the predominant type of Christmas Carol in Spanish, there are many more lullabies out there."
The BEST LULLABY ALBUM en español!

"As an educator planning to raise my children bilingually, I was very happy to discover this CD. My collection of materials would not be complete without it. It is absolutely beatiful and I can't wait to sing along to many of these songs to put my little one to sleep. I find listening to it now (baby is on the way) very soothing and would actually recommend it to anyone who wants to add traditional music in Spanish to their collection. This album is easy to listen to again and again.
Helpful to note: In addition to the songs sung in Spanish (some are quite beautifully sung in dialects specific to the country represented), the album has 1 song in Portuguese and 3 are instrumental. The liner notes give information about the artist and often the song. Also included is an English translation.
While this is my favorite lullaby CD, I would also recommend María del Rey's "Lullabies of Latin America"."

No lo duden es el mejor regalo de amor para un bebe."
