29 rhymes, songs and lullabies from Slavic countries of Eastern Europe (Russia, Poland, Ukraine, Belarus, Czech Republic, Slovakia). At 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 sometimes simple or refined, lyrical, joyous or melancholy, a relationship to the childhood of immense sensitivity. Sacha Poliakova, a young illustrator of Russian origin, gives the measure of her talent. Very impregnated with its culture of origin, 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 by cultural commentaries.
