GIVEAWAY CLOSED!

Beautiful-Creatures

I downloaded this digital audio compilation of “Beautiful Creatures” by Ed Jordan and Alan Glass, and was tickled with the ‘tales’ within the songs! A number of songs are about a particular animal from South Africa, be it a lazy lion, wonderous warthog or the luckiest lizard! My sons and I enjoyed them all, simply because it was basically a story told in a musical way. Our favourite picks were African Lullaby (because it’s very soothing), Lucas the lazy lion (because we love imitating ‘Lucas” ~ RawrrrrrRRrr! ) and Mafutha (because my eldest son loves elephants!).

It may have been released 6 years ago, but I feel that it’s timeless and still relevant today. The music is catchy and very easy to listen to (as opposed to the usual high-pitched kids’ music we hear nowadays). I think there’s always something magical when you can ‘hear’ for yourself the effort they’ve gone through in making children’s music, special. So, I think these guys did a fantastic job! My kids not only liked dancing to the songs, but they also learnt about the animals itself (eg : warthogs hate being clean and are omnivores, and don’t get too close to Hippos even if they seem to be very friendly looking).

About the people behind Beautiful Creatures :

4476426623_ef18906531Beautiful Creatures was formed in South Africa in November 2004 by Alan Glass, Ed Jordan and Paul Choritz who felt there was a need for “Parent Friendly” children’s music. Using the best session musicians, actors and singers in the country, Beautiful Creatures prides itself on being uniquely South African with a positive global message.

The past five years has seen the Beautiful Creatures brand become a household name in South Africa, with books, clothes and toys as well as a T.V. series in development. As more and more Beautiful Creatures cds are sent overseas as gifts, the response has been overwhelming and the brand is now ready to take the world by storm! We are also now available online through Itunes, and keep in touch with twitter and facebook.

The most exciting development for the Beautiful Creatures team has been our BEAUTIFUL CREATURES STAGE SHOW ! A full stage production in partnership with producer Hazel Feldman.

In a fast paced world where parents and children have limited quality time, Beautiful Creature’s mission is to bring families together offering a uniquely South African brand with an educational and positive message.

Buy It! : These guys not only have just this one album out, oh no…they have “More Beautiful Creatures”, “Even More Beautiful Creatures”, “Beautiful Me” and if you like, a South African version of “Beautiful Creatures”, if you want expand your music library. You can get it from iTunes, or at their website itself! I think it’s great for your kids, it’s great if you’re a teacher and want to share these songs with your students. I also think that it is fantastic as a gift because music is always a pleasure to receive!
