Product Details
Performer Notes
  • This is an Enhanced CD containing a full audio program as well as multimedia computer files.
  • Fifty cents from the sale of each copy of THE PLANET SLEEPS will be donated to UNICEF.
  • THE PLANET SLEEPS was nominated for a 1998 Grammy Award for Best Recording Package.
  • THE PLANET SLEEPS is an international compilation of indigenous lullabies from North America to New Zealand. This album contains soothing bed-time sounds from the likes of France, Maori, and Cambodia, to name a few. THE PLANET SLEEPS truly offers an authentic world music sound, with the traditional aspect of the music enhanced by using field recording as well as the studio format.
  • On "Sweet Bitowo," performed by Wes Madiko, the sounds of the jungle provide an ethereal background ambiance for Madiko's percussion-and-vocal-heavy lullaby. Although the compositions are sung in the artists' native tongues, the booklet which accompanies the disc gives translations for every non-English song. David Field, the album's field researcher has not only compiled a fine collection of lullabies, he's also captured a sense of the heritage and tradition too often ignored in world music compilations.
Professional Reviews
Entertainment Weekly (5/9/97, p.81) - "...more than a hip multi-culti soundtrack for putting the kids to bed. It's about the need for sanctuary that's reflected in every country's lullabies." - Rating: A-
