MONTREAL, Oct. 31 /CNW Telbec/ - Once again, parents and children will
discover a "Storybook-Music CD" that offers a lovely 36-page hardcover
illustrated book with a 13-song CD. "Dream Songs Night Songs from Belgium to
Brazil" features songs from such far away places as the Seychelles, Cameroon,
Algeria, Israel, and of course, Belgium and Brazil!
In simple poetic language, Patrick Lacoursière's bedtime story - in
English, Spanish and French - speaks of an imagined journey to unknown lands.
Sylvie Bourbonnière's earth-toned, dreamlike illustrations reflect both the
subject and country of origin of each song. Performers who now call Montreal
home include Félix award-winner Bia, Juno-award winner Paul Kunigis, Quebec's
best-selling world music singer Marco Calliari, la belle province's folk queen
Penny Lang along with Lynda Thalie, Muna Mingole, Zal Idrissa Sissokho, Luc
Lopez and the bilingual folk-roots group Hart-Rouge.
The two previous Dream Songs titles have garnered distinction both at
home and Stateside: Parents' Choice Gold Award, National Parenting
Publications Association Award (NAPPA) Honors Award, Children's Music Web
Award and nominations for both a Juno and Félix Award.
The Secret Mountain is dedicated to the creation of children's books,
videos and music of the highest quality. The French imprint - La montagne
secrète - is considered to be one of the most original and innovative
producers/publishers for children in Québec. Just recently, it received the
2008 TD Canadian Children's Literature Award for the most distinguished
French-language book of the year, "Un cadeau pour Sophie" (story and songs by
Gilles Vigneault, illustrated by Stéphane Jorisch).
