A Young Children's Concert with Raffi

Amazon.ca

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. (Ages 1-9) --Tami Horiuchi --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I ordered this DVD for my granddaughter who was visiting at Christmas. Even at 10 months old, she was captivated by Raffi and his live audience of children and parents. My daughters and I re-lived the days when we used to listen to such fun upbeat songs by one of the greatest children's entertainers ever. Raffi appeals to children (and adults!) of all ages. I highly recommend this concert DVD.

I knew the Rise and Shine video by heart and thought I'd give this video a go for my 15 month old, Maria. The whole family fell in love. So much more engaging for kids than the Rise and Shine band concert...Raffi totally connects with the kids in this one. I don't mind watching this video over and over (and we usually do). There are enough differences in the song lists that watching this video and immediately following it with the Rise and Shine Band video is not overkill...If you and your children like Raffi, BUY THIS!!!

Our family loves Raffi, and we want to share him with you. His songs are really silly, great to sing along with, and never seem to get old - even for us adults. We have all his tapes in our car, and the children ask for him every time we are out. His songs are just right for little people; nothing else can compare. Our kids love his music so much! I am so grateful we discovered his music.
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.

We watch this several times a week with our 2-year-old son, and we're not deadly sick of it.
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.

If this isn't the greatest children's concert of all-time, then I don't know what is. We've listened to a lot of children's music, but this concert is in a league of it's own. We've worn out two copies and about to order a third. This is positive, singable, clappable, laughable music.
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.

This is a really entertaining video that, best of all, involves young children. My kids, ages 3 years and 10 months, absolutely love Raffi and whenever this video is on (which is often), they are entranced by his gentle, engaging demeanor and catchy, easy to sing and dance to songs. My 3 year old knows most of the songs by heart (even one partially in French!) and loves to touch Raffi on the screen to hug him. My 10 month old bounces and tries to clap along with the songs, especially "Shake My Sillies Out." I highly recommend this video to all families - even the moms and dads will be singing along "Down By the Bay!"

I can not recommend this video strongly enough for those children who love music. No matter how tired, grumpy, or generally not fit for human contact my children are, if we pop this in the VCR, they metamorph right in front of our eyes.
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.

I was sorting through family videos today. Some, that I had put aside years ago. I came across two Raffi tapes that had been true family favorites when my kids were toddlers to preschoolers. I was going to send them to my nephew who has a young son. My kids now 12 and almost 15 begged me not to give them away. My 12 year old was so overcome with joy that she actually had tears rolling down her cheek as she watched the tape. This one is a keeper, it always feels like a warm fuzzy blanket when you listen to Raffi! I now have to order some for gifts!
