European Playground CD


SKU: 9781587502347 Putumayo

European Playground CD - Take a fun-filled musical tour of Europe without packing and suitcase! The multilingual songs are easy to sing and dance along to, no matter what language you speak. As with all Putumayo Kids releases, European Playground showcases the ways in which musical styles become global phenomena. The universal appeal of Caribbean musical styles is evident in tunes from artists working in the Netherlands, Greece and Denmark. Similarly, the mutual influence that Scottish and Irish music and North American folk music share can be heard in songs by Scotland's Ian Benzie and Ireland's Sharon Shannon. Adding to the educational experience, European Playground includes liner notes in four languages - English, Spanish, French and German.A portion of of Putumayo's proceeds from the sale of this CD will be donated to the European Federation for Street Children (EFSC), a Brussels-based non-profit organization committed to the improvement of the rights and situations of street children in Europe and beyond. A division of Putumayo World Music, Putumayo Kids is committed to introducing children to the world through fun, upbeat collections of music. Other CDs in the Playground series include best-sellers World Playground and Latin Playground.
