Debbie Lan, founder of Grenadilla grew up in Cape Town South Africa hearing the joyful, upbeat music kwela.
She has recreated that same feel in her music with this multi-voiced group in New York.
Their musical voices blend together so smoothly with a folk art style that continues to move not only children but the adults who listen to the cd as well.
When I first got the cd I figured it would be a good listen for the kids. They are growing up a little for some of say Raffi style music but still wanting to infuse their lives with a variety of music. This cd Can't Wait, is joyful, light and a blessing to listen to. I love picking out the unique sounds in the pieces with a penny-whistle and balafon just to name a couple.
Songs like "Sitting on Top of the World" and my favorite "Doodle Doodle Doodle Doodle Doo" are just 2 of the 15 enjoyable tunes that these ladies bring to our listening ears.
Transporting the listen to South Africa and the music of the streets!
