Listen To This: Songs From the Garden of Eden

SongsFromGardenEden.jpgThe Canadian publisher/label The Secret Mountain has made a splash here in the past year or so with a number of book/CD collections. You might be familiar with their Trout Fishing in America book/disk My Name Is Chicken Joe, but they've also released a number of different more globally-themed collections.

Their most recent collection is Songs From the Garden of Eden, featuring 28 Jewish lullabies and nursery rhymes from around the world. Certainly if you're Jewish you'll find lots of interest here, but even those not of the Jewish faith might be intrigued.

At least take a listen to the two songs here made available for streaming with permission of The Secret Mountain. I particularly like "Yome Yome" ("El Parida" is after the jump).
