world party

the udu, or African clay drum. Other standouts include "Canta, Canta Hermanito" ("Sing, Sing Little Brother"), set to a sinuous bossa nova beat with guitar and maracas, and "Sambahia," a Brazilian samba transporting listeners to Rio at carnival time. In lieu of an atlas, this world tour is guided by helpful liner notes that identify the different rhythms, instruments, and traditions of each tune. Families can talk about differences and similarities in musical forms and instruments across cultures.
