Product Description

Marla Lewis's second CD! In I Love to Talk to Plants Lewis conducts an educative tour through the musical styles of a broad variety of cultures: Brazilian, African, Cuban, big band, classical and country music are just some of the influences to be heard. A diversity of arrangements brings each song to life - with hilarious surprises along the way, and is guaranteed to spark each child's natural curiosity and musical adventurousness. Lewis's eclectic sensibility comes alive as she incorporates exciting global rhythms; fun, swinging bass lines; clever, jazzed-up guitar parts; lilting horn arrangements; fresh lyrical ideas with a lively sense of humor and melodic hooks sure to get kids and parents singing along. With a voice by turns joyous, cheeky and soothing, Lewis imparts gentle life lessons while promoting an awareness of children's lives in other cultures. "In My Pocket," a song inspired by the work of NGO's Save the Children, Oxfam and Habitat for Humanity, follows the story of a child helping to build a village's prosperity, while "Leap of Faith," a quasi-rap song about overcoming a bully, encourages assertive behaviour by using words instead of force. Lewis draws inspiration and song ideas from real-life scenarios and children's literature. The song "Will You Be My Mom?" is based on the incredible true tale of a baby hippopotamus lost in the Asian tsunami of 2005, saved by fishermen and befriended by a giant tortoise. "Whenever Celia Sings," an upbeat salsa tune, pays homage to the Cuban American singer Celia Cruz. The song is based upon several children's books about Cruz's life and features Robyn Lobe on percussion, who played with both Cruz and Tito Puente. The title track, "I Love to Talk to Plants," inspired by Broadway and classical music, shows off Lewis's comic range as she brings life to dandelions, impatiens and morning glory. ~this CD won The National Parenting Center Seal of Approval, as well as Parent's choice Gold And NAPPA Honors ~
