This is BASHO & friends' first album in Mandarin! It is a musical ride through your everyday life: the food you eat, the places you go, the people in your family, and the things you find important. From hip hop beats to traditional Chinese New Years hooks, this album blends musical genres while keeping listeners singing along to the catchy licks. Think Kai Lan meets the Beastie Boys! Parents love it and kids are addicted because it's all about the fun of music and cultural immersion.
Over the past two years, BASHO & friends has had great success helping kids learn foreign languages through music in Spanish, French and Mandarin. Basho's eclectic mix of musical genres to celebrate familiar topics like food, family, animals, colors, nature, school, and feelings, connects with kids both musically and emotionally - and the hooks are so catchy you won't be able to stop singing them. This, their first album in Mandarin, celebrates all the beauty of being a kid by exploring familiar topics in a new language. Between the unforgettable tunes and the repetition, you won't be able to help learning Mandarin. Great for preschool to high school - these hooks will leave parents head bobbing and tapping the steering wheel even after the kids have been dropped off at school!
BASHO & friends is led by Basho Mosko, a 2-decade veteran of global education and media who has delivered music CD’s and videos in Mandarin, French, English, and Spanish, and will deliver an interactive iPad application in September 2011.
