Children's Songs from Afghanistan Qu Qu Barg-e-Chinaar Collected by Dr. Louise Pascale Book and CD 32 pages, approx. 60 min. CD Editor Louise Pascale was a Peace Corps volunteer in Afghanistan in the60s. After discovering that elementary schools there did not have any music books, she and an Afghan musician, a Pashtu poet and an elementary teacher collected children's songs and put together a small songbook. She took this songbook to the schools and taught the songs and had the children make illustrations for the songs (which are shown in the book's introduction). Today Louise has recreated the collection of Afghan children's songs vowing to return the songs to Afghan children. Over 10,000 copies of the songbook and recordings are now in elementary schools across Afghanistan.This special English edition contains the English translation and transliteration for each song, informative liner notes, map and an accompanying CD with Canadian-Afghan children singing the songs. Contents: Alphabet Song Ali Baba Hello, Hello Bread Story Polka Dot Ball Grandmother Swings Me Gheej Gheej Don Little Golden Bird Coo Coo Coo Maple Leaf Little Red Bird Old Man Who Braids Chains Song of Saalang Song of Spring The Book Star Afghan People
