We just got hammered with another large snow storm here in the Northeast and I for one am done with winter. I’m thinking Spring and some fun new family music to break in the new season!! Here are a couple great artists with new music headed our way this month!!
African American artist Siama, who is originally from the Congo and now lives in Minneapolis, will release his first children’s album “Land of the Yangalele,” in March as well. These exuberant songs are very catchy – you’ll be dancing and curious about the origins of these songs. The album liner notes offer excellent teaching tools as they introduce children to Congolese culture, the Kikongo language, and African geography. The recording was inspired by popular children’s concerts in the Twin Cities with “Papa Siama” and “Auntie Dallas,” and it has the immediacy of a family sing-along.
You can find out more about this amazing album and Siama on his website. Your kids will be dancing and having a blast while learning about other cultures! Check out this video below to see a live performance.

Zoom A Little Zoom! A Ride Through Science is the latest kids and family recording by children’s music GRAMMY® Award winners, Cathy Fink & Marcy Marxer. Great music comes first with the “Constellation Jig”, a Klezmer treatment to the hibernating “Bobo the Bear” and western swing of “Why Does the Sun Shine?”. Boogie-woogie to “What Makes the Lightning?” or learn how to sound like a cricket with “What Is An Insect?”.
As an educator I love finding ways to get kids excited about learning. My class loves everything about music and this album brings together fun tunes with great science! You can preorder this awesome album today and get your little one excited about science. Find out more and preorder here. Check out the new video for the title track Zoom A Little Zoom below.
