Earth Dream Lullabies
'Earth Dream Lullabies' is a melodic, soothing, and dreamy album of songs with conscious and inspiring lyrics, and an earthy and universal theme. These original and traditional lullabies seek to evoke a feeling of wonder and awe at the greatness and mystery of this planet and beyond, and to inspire in children a sense of the sacred. The songs blend harmonic vocals with instruments such as the bamboo flute, African xylophone, mandolin, tablas and classical guitar, creating a tapestry that is rich and intricate, while maintaining a gentleness and simplicity that children can relate to. This is music that can truly be enjoyed by the whole family. ................... Melita is a musician in Berkeley, CA.
