ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Your music has meant a great deal to me... I believe that each of us has one important mitzvah to accomplish in life. You are blessed with a beautiful voice and a special feeling for your music and I have been chosen to teach about the suffering and heroism of the Jewish people during the Holocaust.  Your music has helped me to teach my students about the richness of our life and culture in Eastern Europe before the war. Thank you, Tanja." ---Jack Silverstein, Tallahassee, FL

"It really is a good deed that you are recording this music -- so beautifully. Thanks!" --Sharona Berken, Cold Spring, NY

"I like the tape very much. Most of the songs were the ones I sang to my children many years ago, and now I am glad that my grandchildren will have them available for their young children when they marry and have a family of their own." --Tillie DeRusha, Encino, CA

"I was given a copy when my daughter was born. A Legacy of Lullabies has become our favorite bedtime routine, to play as my children fall asleep. I have two older boys, ages 10 and 8, and they also love these songs. Your recordings are such a gift -- a Jewish gift.  There is nothing better than your songs to put us in touch with who we are and where we come from. It's as if all the beloved Bubbies & Zaidies from all the generations are right there with us, watching over us as we sleep. God bless you. Thank you so much." --Rhona Friedland, North Miami Beach, FL

You can't go wrong with this lovely lullaby collection. The gentle beauty of From Generation to Generation: A Legacy of Lullabies could relax the most restless of nappers. This universal language of parental love crosses all cultural barriers. -- Los Angeles Times

Should I mention the soothing simplicity of the piano, guitar and balalaika arrangements? What about Tanja's golden voice? Maybe I should start with the expert musicianship? Or the amazing way that she communicates to all though singing in Yiddish, Hebrew or Ladino. I'd surely like to distinguish this tape from the plethora of syrupy warbling that floods the market. Perhaps this will say it best. Tanja's album inspired me to write this review four months in advance at a time when my writing had just about dried up! If you are a parent, if you have a child, if your child sleeps, then you need this tape. There, that says it. -- Baltimore's Child

Absolutely Heartwarming
Very soothing songs to caress your spirit and soul. Great for children and adults. Bravo Tanja!

Georgina Chan Perdomo

Wonderful awakening of my genetic memory
I used Durme Durme, a ladino lullaby in our Bible Class, when we studied Proverbs, to help us learn the beautiful ladino language brought to the Americas by the Spanish Jews of the XV century.
When I heard this song, I had the distinct impresion that I have heard it before many times, but this did not happened in my lifetime, it must have been an awakening of
my genetic memory handed down to me, by one of my ancestors that heard it or sang it. Thank you!

I love this CD. I am looking forward to sharing it with my granddaughter - especially Laila, Laila, as this is to be her Hebrew name.

Teddi

Soothing!
This CD full of soothing music calms children as well as frazzled moms!

Gina Marie

beautiful!
This is amazing! My son instantly calms down when I play this for him. If he's cranky, Tanya's voice soothes him to sleep. A must have for Jewish and non-Jewish families...

Erin Weber

Absolutely beautiful~
Beautiful songs! Helps me hold a piece of my husband's childhood even though I wasn't there for it. Gentle and soothing - perfect for creating some calm in the car : ) I also bought a copy for my in-laws and they are as thrilled with it as I am! I am looking forward to purchasing the other CD as well.

David

Nothing short of beautiful
I actually owned this CD years ago, lost it (and forgot Tanja's name) and just found it again now. She has a beautiful voice, very soothing and my new baby boy loves the sound of her music.

Ellis Kirschenbaum

From Generation to Generation
The many other rave reviews are well-earned. A virtually perfect album.

Naomi Azrieli

Beautiful and moving - and now an indispensable part of our family's evening.
We started listening to these beautiful haunting songs 6 years ago when our first son was born, we continued with our second son and up to this day with our baby daughter. We have made up new words to some of the meolodies making them "our own" and we have also rejoiced to hear our toddlers singing in Yiddish and Ladino. Tanja Solnik's voice and these beautiful, moving songs are an indispensable part of our family's evening.

Beauty and Jewish Tradition in the Nursery
I am a Neonatal Intensive Care Nurse, to say I hear alot of baby music would be an understatement and so I know quality when I hear it. This CD hooked me immediately as I was choosing music for my daughter-in-law who is expecting our first grandchild (to go with a rocking chair gift). I had hoped to find something that would be a thread to the generations, I found a whole blanket woven by Tanja. This CD is beautiful!
