Raffi's mellow vocals in "Like Me and You" are the first thing you hear when this tuneful around-the-world tour of original and traditional children's songs begins. One of Music for Little People's 25th anniversary CD collections, its revisited tracks reflect the multicultural celebrations that have defined the respected independent label's approach to family music. A sampling: "Quavi Quavi" from West Africa, sung by Taj Mahal; "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" and "Here Come Our Mothers" with Ladysmith Black Mambazo; Los Lobos' rendition of "La MaƱanita Alegre" and Papillion's "Down on the Bayou."
