Produced in Paris under the direction of Chantal Grosl├ęziat and Paul Mindy, this collection of songs features adults and children singing in French Creole, a language spoken in several dialects by more than 7 million people. Lyrics are reproduced in the original French Creole dialects and translated into English, followed by notes on the origin and cultural context of each song.

The songs and performers hail from the tropical islands of Haiti, Guadaloupe, Martinique and Reunion Island, all reflecting the rich oral heritage of children’s music in those countries.
