Putumayo Kids Presents Asian Dreamland features 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.
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.
A portion of Putumayo's proceeds from the sale of Asian Dreamland will be donated to Worldwide Orphans Foundation in support of their efforts to enrich the lives and enhance the wellbeing of children living in orphanages throughout Asia and the rest of the world.
