Chinese music for kids: Little Dragon Tales

We just wanted to write a brief post to recommend an outstanding album of children's music. It's called Little Dragon Tales: Chinese Children's Songs by the Shanghai Restoration Project. The album is very well produced and is high quality. It features children singing classic Chinese children songs, but in surprisingly tasteful modern renditions.

There's lots of synthesizer, piano, and good drum beats that enhance the melodies and add an element of complexity that allows adults as well as children to enjoy them music. I am very picky with my music, and I even enjoy this.

Our kids request to listen to this album all the time, and they are starting to sing along to some of the songs.

If you want to give your kids a bit of Chinese culture and some good music, give this a try! Good children's music in general is hard to find, and we think this album is a keeper.

If you happen to have amazon prime... then it's free! Otherwise the MP3 will cost $8.99. We think it's worth it.

What do you think of this album? Any other music you recommend?

  1. That is an awesome suggestion. I just might have to incorporate some kiddy music in Mandarin in my experiment.
