After one listen you will understand why for the last few years, XM and Sirius Satellite Radio have been playing this CD everyday on both the Kid's channel and on the Spa channel.
While soothing and relaxing for the very young, the album also provides a unique listening experience for adults, as the music transports the listener with instruments and musical imagery suggestive of the lands from which these songs have come.
Night Wheel features Michael Barry on a variety of guitars from acoustic to baritone. He is joined by a collection of New York musicians on instruments ranging from bamboo flute to cello and mandolin. The album features original arrangements of lullabies collected from around the world, including Tibet, Africa, Ireland, the United States, Cuba, and yes, even Tonga. 10% of the proceeds benefit the Tibet Fund's Noenga School for Disabled Tibetan Children.
