Take a walk on the wild side with this global musical journey into the animal kingdom.
Animal Playground is a multilingual collection of animal-themed songs from around the world. The enhanced CD also includes an original music video for the song "No More Monkeys," produced by Putumayo and shot on location in Trinidad featuring Trinidad-born artist Asheba.
Since children of all nationalities are fascinated by animals, Putumayo found it only natural to create a collection of exceptional songs featuring animal themes and folklore from across the globe. The 13 tracks on the album will guide listeners on a journey that begins in North America and ends in Africa without skipping a beat in between. Music fans of all ages will want to jump, hop and sing along to the playful, upbeat melodies of Animal Playground.
