Raffi - Owl Singalong CD - a Musicwrap today!

A new children's album from beloved children's entertainer, Raffi.  For four decades Raffi has been the world's best-selling and most influential children's performer, delighting audiences both young and old with his bubbly personality, playful lyrics and songs that cry out... singalong with me.


OWL SINGALONG is the follow up to Raffi's 2014 release LOVE BUG, which was his first set of children's songs in twelve years.  The 16-song album was inspired by both the owls the artist would hear nightly outside his home on Salt Spring Island, Canada, and by his grand-niece Lucie's enthusiasm for her stuffed-toy owl-- continues Raffi's commitment to entertain his young audiences in ways that are educational, uplifting, and - most important - fun.

To read an interview with Raffi, go to Yahoo? Parenting :

He enjoys making music just as much as ever and already has the next album in mind.  The album is available to pre-order and fans who pre-order the digital version will immediately be able to  download "Green Dream" and the title track, "Owl Singalong."

Besides his music concerts and CD's Raffi is known as a respected advocate on behalf of children, lending his voice, insight and experience to his vision of Child Honouring, an original holistic philosophy for creating a humane and sustainable world by addressing the universal needs of children and unifying principle for restoring human and natural communities. 

He is a recipient of the Order of Canada and the United Nations' Earth achievement Award.  He also holds four honorary degrees.  He is associated with NGOs, including the Darwin Project Council, the Centre for Partnership Studies, the Centre for Children's Health and the environment, and the Fraser Mustard Institute for Human Development.
