Songs From the Mountain

Fall 2017 Music
Ages: 2 - 10 yrs.
CD Price: $13.00
Review:

The recommended age range of 2 to 10 is too limiting for a family CD with all ages appeal. This is bluegrass music, Jewish style, soulfully presented with English and Hebrew lyrics in original and traditional songs written and/or arranged by husband-and-wife team Eric Lindberg and Doni Zasloff (aka children's artist Mama Doni). Joined by other talented musicians, Lindberg and Zasloff offer some pretty fab singing, picking, strumming, and fiddling in a biblical and secular mix that includes "Open up the Window Noah," "Keep on the Sunny Side of Life," "Singin' Jewish Girl," "Will the Circle Be Unbroken," and "Down to the River to Pray." Also included, songs from the duo's 2016 Nefesh Mountain release and the Mama Doni album, Emunah: "Brothers and Sisters (Hine Ma Tov)," "Modeh Ani," "Mi Chamocha," "Oseh Shalom," and the lovely "Lilah Tov Lullaby." Expressive instrumentation and vocals capture the flavor of each song.
