A Young Children's Concert with Raffi
Raffi is something of an icon in the world of children's music, and it's no wonder when you see his folksy, expressive style and his talent for inspiring young children. This concert video features Raffi and his guitar on a simple stage before an audience brimming with enthusiastic young faces. Raffi sings a wonderful mix of 18 classic and original songs, many from The Singable Songs Collection, while beaming audience members clap, stomp, gesture, jump, and thoroughly enjoy themselves. Several pieces are performed a cappella, and there are even solo segments on kazoo and "air trumpet." So what's the best thing about Raffi? You'll have to decide whether it's his uncanny appeal to children, the comical lyrics in his original songs, his simple yet expressive treatment of well-loved children's songs, or the fact that parents can listen repeatedly to his music without losing their sanity. Whatever your choice, be assured that this wholesome video will completely captivate your child for a full 45 minutes.

This concert is maybe the best tape or CD he ever made. It's so silly and entertaining for children, and captures live why Raffi has such a magicical spell with young children. We have it taped (stereo) for the car and listen to it over and over.
Our other all-time favorites are Singable Songs for the Very Young (with a Peanut Butter Sandwich) and Raffi in Concert with the Rise and Shine Band, but we love them all (except the stinker Raffi on Broadway). There are a dozen other great CD's from Raffi to choose from, and any of them will do nicely with a peanut butter sandwich.
Provides the best of our two fave Raffi tapes, Baby Beluga and Singable Songs for the Very Young. I was afraid my son wouldn't like *seeing* Raffi after hearing him for so long -- maybe he had a different picture in his mind -- but he LOVES the video, and still loves the tapes we play in the car.
You won't be tempted to hide this one, or restrict repeat viewing. It's good for the kid, you can tell! They jump around, participate, learn the songs, and have fun. He's already learning to play guitar!
Also like Raffi in Concert with the Rise & Shine Band, but it's not quite as good as this one.
Raffi plays all his best songs on this video. It's just Raffi sitting on a chair (animated) with his guitar, voice and kazoo; and children are just mesmerized. It's great for clapping, singing and moving. Pure magic!
This video was certified Quintuple Platinum in North America (and even more sales worldwide).
Share this with your children. And check out his amazing albums.
Raffi strikes a wonderful rapport with his young audience, both on-screen and off. The songs are short, memorable, and very singable. He is a warm and comfortable addition to our family whenever he visits via tv. Especially memorable are the "snuggle song" Thanks A Lot, Baby Beluga, and his renditions of favorite nursery songs.

He wants to hear more of it. He does have several DVD as well so he loves the songs.
Again my great niece liked it a lot but she is at the stage of seeing things acted out as well as just singing. She will enjoy it much better when she is a little olderPublished 24 months ago by Vicki Rigsby
