African Cream Kidz is proud to announce its latest release: Singalong Kidz Vol. 2
Wendy Oldfield is the renowned producer of African Cream’s Under African Skies, Singalong Kidz (2009 SAMA Best Kids English Album Winner) and In the Womb (2011 SAMA Best Kids Album Nominee). Since entering the market, the ACM Kidz imprint has managed to capture the hearts of children everywhere.
Now Oldfield presents her latest long-anticipated release. Oldfield explains, “After wining the SAMA award in 2009, I immediately started writing new sings for the next album.”
Oldfield has kept the South African theme very strong using indigenous instruments and different vernaculars in a couple of songs. She used children from from Wilderness where she lives as well as her own three children and succeeded in catching their personalities on the recordings.
“The voices are so unique and delightful and their singing so enthusiastic – I cannot help but smile every time I hear the album,” she says, adding, “I reminded myself to keep it simple as it’s so easy to get caught up in the production and lose sight of the simple delivery that it takes to grab a child’s attention and so I have focused on the melodies and the importance of the lyrics, keeping the background music clear and simple.”
The songs are catchy, sometimes hilarious, relevant and very melodic. They are sure to become one of your children’s favourites just like its predecessor. Oldfield asserts, “I hope you have as much fun listening to them as I have making them.”
