Music is art and inspiration and to share music with your children is sharing a life long gift. We were happy when Daria, a wonderful children’s performer who has traveled around the globe sharing her inspirational music, gave us her CD, Grandchildren’s Delight to review.
Daria is loved around the world. Her music inspires and empowers children and adults alike. Her website is packed with information, which is great for parents, teachers and homeschooling parents alike! Learn to build your own instruments, discover silly songs or design a multi-cultural project for your school or community group. Explaining Daria in a sentence is easy: She is a multi talented artist who really cares about inspiring children and adults alike through the power of music.
We chose Grandchildren’s Delight from Daria’s collection to review because, like many new parents, we sometimes forget the classic songs of our youth to sing to our children. These songs cannot be lost. So we chose Daria’s CD which higlights some of the best loved songs from the good old days.
From This Little Light of Mine to Down By The Riverside, have your children sing along with Daria’s beautiful and catchy voice. Remember the classics of your youth but make sure to pass these lovely songs to your children also! You could do that by buying Grandchildren’s Delight here. Click this link for a listening sample.
For the last two decades, internationally known folksinger DARIA has traveled the globe, learning, sharing and making music while building communities and encouraging a new view of hope and peace for all the world’s children. In the United States, she has won national awards for her children’s cds including a Parent’s Choice Award, a NAPPA (National Association For Parenting Publications) Award and a Children’s Music Web Award. The songs she has recorded on her cd’s have been used throughout the world; in South Africa in Teaching Tolerance Curriculums, in Australia in Respecting Others
Curriculum and a special song she wrote about the Rev, Dr. Martin Luther King is used in classrooms across the states to celebrate his life and legacy. Also her version of the Zulu folksong “Here Come Our Mothers” is used in many Mother’s Day celebrations.
For Daria, Its all about empowering kids… letting them explore the world of music in a way that unlocks the amazing talent and inner beauty they naturally possess. For that reason, she’s adapted manyof her multi-cultural activities for this website as a resource for parents, teachers, homeschoolers and kids of all abilities (each activity has all abilities notes). Whether it’s building a pow-wow style drum that can be played by a large number of people or recycling objects by transforming them into instruments, this website shares many great ways of bringing folks together through music.
