Travel writer/ethnomusicologist Reiko Shima has compiled a collection of playful songs and lullabies of the black people of the Caribbean, Africa, and Brazil, using field recordings and photographs. Introducing a variety of songs that have been passed down from each country, blending the sound of cars, chirping birds, and laughter into everyday life, while also delving into Negro rhythms from the slave era, colonial era, and independence. Audio clips are a rhythm song by Tam Tam from Senegal, a medley of Haitian children's songs, a cultivation song sung with a percussion group, Enrique Blanco from Dominica, etc. The booklet with photos and lyrics is also a must-see.
