It's a big lullaby week this week for all of us that tend to get really
worked up and throw our shoes at the television. Below are your lullaby
opportunities, brought to you by the extended family of Charming Hostess.
Happy New Year, everybody!
Cynthia Hostess has recorded a lullaby album. It's also her birthday
this week! Check out this lovely CD
here, guaranteed to appeal to the shorty in your life.
2. Jewlia Hostess had a mixed week this week. On one
hand, she won a Creative Work Fund grant with the Magnes Museum to present
Bowls Project. On the other hand, she has pneumonia, can't breathe,
and is supposed to relax. Lullabies to the rescue! Here's one from her
performance with The Ark in Krakow.
Kitka, our dear friends and a cappella heroines, have an amazing lullaby
program to share: Kitka Sings Lullabies and Songs of Childhood
The gentle rhythms, lilting melodies, and poetic texts of traditional
lullabies give voice to the innermost psyche of a mother. Through this
voice, a child is ushered to the gateways of dreams, language, and culture.
Kitka has collected and arranged a stunning set of Eastern European cradle
songs, together with songs sung by the young, songs sung by grown children
confiding in or remembering their parents, and songs that reflect on youth
and aging. While
families are welcome to attend, these concerts are not designed as children's
performances, but rather as deep listening experiences.
