Paul Borgese and The Strawberry Traffic Jam are recipients of the Parents' Choice Award for their first CD, Even the Monkeys Fall Out of the Trees, which introduces your children to musical styles from around the world. Ranging from country to tango and rock to island rhythms, these fun, interactive songs will have parents and children dancing, singing and laughing together while learning positive messages!
On their second album, Zebra Cadabra, Paul Borgese and The Strawberry Traffic Jam team up with South African multi-instrumentalist, Tony Cedras, and members of the cast of Disney's The Lion King on Broadway to create a set of family friendly songs influenced by Africa's music and culture. The result is a musical safari that introduces young children and their parents to the jive of Johannesburg's Soweto Township in South Africa, the soukous of West Africa, the calypso of the Caribbean and much more. Tony Cedras's impressive credits include recording and touring with Paul Simon, Harry Belafonte and African musical icons, Hugh Masekela and Miriam Makeba.
On their album, Songs for Halloween, Paul Borgese and The Strawberry Traffic Jam have created one of the best collections of original songs specifically tailored for Halloween. This fun-filled CD will liven up any Halloween celebration and will tickle the funny bones of children and adults alike.
Paul and the band continue to share proceeds from all of their books and music with various children's charities, including Books For Kids and WHY Hunger.
