All Around This World: Africa features 32 African songs for kids from 20 African nations that originated in two dozen languages. The songs introduce families to the continent through songs recorded in genres like Ethio-Jazz, Highlife, Soukous, Sierra Leonean Reggae, Afrobeat, Fuji, Nubian wedding music and South African Isicathamiya.

Jay Sand, founder and lead teacher of All Around This World, sourced this material from Africa with tremendous care, choosing songs that are not only geographically, linguistically and thematically diverse enough to take families on a broad tour of the continent but that also have substantial cultural and musical depth. He adapted/translated/transformed each song for use in the classroom, then finally did the most important thing for a teacher and family-friendly musician - he sang the songs with kids!
