It should come as no surprise that the continent that invented instruments which gave rise to everything from violins, lutes, guitars and drums would also be home to some of the most infectious children's music on the planet.
This Rough Guide presents a playful selection of young at heart music - a collection of joyful tracks that have been road tested and hand-picked to entertain children the world over. Celebrate in the creative sounds of Congolese band Staff Benda Bilili, Malagasy maestro Lala Njava and Malian marvels Amadou & Mariam.
Comes with a free bonus CD of the acclaimed album Jidka by Saba.
