Most young children love to make noise! Think of that happy smile a toddler wears when clapping loudly. Consider the remarkable energy preschoolers will put into stomping their feet or patting out a rhythm. Some of the most amazing fun can be had when children are encouraged to use their bodies to produce rhythms and music.
The recently released I Like Everything About You (Yes, I Do)! by Crosspulse Percussion Ensemble is a rousing collection of classic rhythm songs and unique body beat songs, generated by clapping, stomping and patting. After twenty years of educational outreach, concerts and workshops, Crosspulse Percussion Ensemble’s first CD of children’s music is an album that the whole family will enjoy! Part drill team, part multicultural rhythm section, this energetic team combines body beats and vocals with the unique sounds of hand drums, bells, bass, banjo, voices and found sound. This CD is being labeled as one of the best albums of the year. Check it out today!
