No matter what the country or language, parents all across the world must find ways to get their children to sleep each night. Asian Dreamland offers soothing and musically intriguing songs from countries as diverse as Japan, China, India and even the Siberian republic of Tatarstan. This harmonious collection of tranquil songs is perfect for yoga and meditation, as well as putting the little ones to sleep.
Asian Dreamland follows gently in the footsteps of Putumayo Kids' first lullaby collection, Dreamland, one of the best-selling children's and family CDs from the label. Together, these CDs launch a new Dreamland series featuring international music to relax listeners of all ages.
Performers include leading artists whose work represents modern interpretations of ancient traditions, such as Shang Shang Typhoon (Japan), the Yoshida Brothers (Japan), Ali Akbar Khan (India), and Lei Qiang (China), as well as lesser known artists such as Kelsang Chukie Tethong , who performs a Tibetan chant, and Zulya (Tatarsan).
One can also hear unusual instruments ranging from the armisen, a three-stringed instrument similar to a banjo that came to Japan from China many centuries ago, to the erhu, an ancient Chinese instrument whose origins go back more than a thousand years, and the sarode, an Indian instrument that is similar to the violin.
