ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Circle Round is the children’s storytelling podcast from WBUR, Boston’s NPR News Station. Every week, kids and the grown-ups they love enjoy folktales from around the world adapted as radio plays: all featuring original music by composer Eric Shimelonis. Eric scores each story with a different solo instrument: one that reflects the tale’s cultural origins, or possesses the right dramatic sound. While you’ll recognize instruments like the piano, upright bass and xylophone, many may be new to you, like the ney, mbira and pipa. As a result, whether you’re 3 or 93 — the music of Circle Round provides a wealth of opportunities for cultural diversity, education, and timeless entertainment.
