Soothing collection of melodic, instrumental tunes for bedtime and relaxation.
Instrumental Dreamland features exceptional renditions of such classics as "Brahms' Lullaby," "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" and "What a Wonderful World."

Artists include Malian griot and kora master, Balla Tounkara, Hawaiian ukulele virtuoso Jake Shimabukuro, Brazilian guitarist, Reginaldo Frazatto, Jr., Irish multi-instrumentalist Seamus Egan and American pianist Michael Allen Harrison.
