A compilation of the most beautiful lullabies from across 'The Axis Of Evil'. In his 'Axis of Evil' speech, George W. Bush singled out Iran, Iraq and North Korea, along with their allies, as the enemies of democracy.
Enlisting world support for his war on terrorism, Bush pointed a finger and drew the line between us and them. Lalolalo - Dont You Worry Bush forgot one thing. These enemy states are filled with mothers and children. Hillestad proves 'our enemies' possess a remarkable capacity for love and warmth in a tradition of lullabies that spans generations of sense and memory. Hillestad pairs singers from around the world singing in English with the traditional lullabies sung by a host of singers from Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine, Syria, Cuba and North Korea.
Pleasantly devoid of Stereotypical lullaby arrangements and overproduction, the collection of lullabies on this CD shuns the saccharin My Child - Various - Lullabies From The Axis Of Evil keeps the compositions spare and focused on the song. The pair exchanges verses in this heartbreakingly lovely lullaby. Vahdat charms the listener first and Morris's husky voice joins leaving the listener helpless to resist. The song expresses the sadness of the Palestinian people without the hateful rhetoric we are so accustomed to seeing in the news.
It is a gentle and hopeful wish for a child, something the conflict is in desperate need of. A traditional lullaby from North Korea, the combination of the voices of Lee My Child - Various - Lullabies From The Axis Of Evil Reader, with just a tang of the Asian sound, are sure to lull the most reluctant baby to sleep. It's the type of song one would hope that every mother everywhere sings to their child and Angel - Crime & The City Solution - Živi V Ljubljani a sort of pop, feel-good feel to it.
It expresses the love we wish for all children. Like all the songs on this CD, it is the perfect fusion of traditional and modern. The blending of the two voices in two different languages along with a Middle Eastern rhythm in this simple song is soothing and precious. Listeners will also appreciate the liner notes and Erik Hillestad's journey of putting this CD together and Take It - Avanti - The End Has No End impressions as he met and recorded these remarkable women.
I can't think of a better way to express the care and love in that fundamental communication between parent and child everywhere. It will only be available on the U. Log in. Cart 0 Your cart is currently empty. Menu Cart 0. More from this collection. Add to Cart MP3 Album. Track List. Add to Cart.
