29 nursery rhymes, songs and lullabies from the Slavic countries of Eastern Europe (Russia, Poland, Ukraine, Belarus, Czech Republic, Slovakia). To the sound of the balalaika, the cymbalum, the accordion or the violin, the book-disc highlights songs of fabulous richness. He expresses with melodies and words that are sometimes simple or refined, lyrical, joyful or melancholic, a report on childhood of immense sensitivity. Sacha Poliakova, a young illustrator of Russian origin, shows the extent of her talent. Very steeped in its original culture, its miniatures all in finesse or its large bucolic frescoes really take us on a journey. All songs are translated and transcribed in their original alphabet and supplemented with cultural commentary.
