I love to blast upbeat music from the speakers of a Saturday afternoon (well, just about anytime really) and get the kids dancing, singing and expressing themselves. However, I equally like to use music as a calming device and I’m always on the look out for chilled out albums for quiet time… enter Instrumental Dreamland by Putumayo Kids.
Instrumental Dreamland features 11 soothing songs from various artists across the globe. You’ll recognise beautiful renditions of songs such as “What a Wonderful World”, “Brahms’ Lullaby” and “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” as well as a few lesser known songs such as “Bressay Lullaby”, and “O Filho Que Eu Quero Ter” from Brazil, which I adore.
This album will definitely be added to my regular rotation. In fact, I’m feeling calmer and more relaxed right now after listening to it this morning while I hugged my morning coffee. Perhaps I’ll add it to my work day rotation!
