AllMusic Review by

This is the fifth installment in an excellent series of CDs of children's songs from around the world. This one presents children's songs of the tribal minorities of southwest China, in the provinces Yunnan and Guizhou, the area where there is the largest number of minorities (i.e., 30 of the 54 officially recognized Chinese minorities). On this CD, listeners hear songs from the Miao, the Dong, the Bai, the Dai, the Nashi, and the Tibetans. All of them live in the mountains and rural areas and were able to maintain distinct and unique customs. A treat for the ears.
