In this app we've gathered over 50 beloved Lullabies from countries and cultures all around the world.

Each Lullaby includes the full text in the original language, with an English translation.

Each includes recordings, some by professional musicians, but many by ordinary people who have contributed them to us, to help preserve their culture.

Most include beautiful illustrations.

Many have commentary sent to us by our correspondents who write about the history of the songs and what they meant in their lives.

If you know someone who you think the Lullaby would mean a lot to, you can email the lyrics to them from within the app.

We've included beloved favorites from all over the world like "Fais dodo, Colas mon p'tit frère (Go to Sleep, Colas My Little Brother)" from France, "Schlaf, Kindlein, schlaf (Sleep, Baby Sleep)" from Germany, and "Dodo ti pitit manman (Sleep Little Mama)" from Haiti. We've also included English language favorites like "Hush-a-bye, Baby, On the Tree Top" and "Sweet and Low".

Lullabies Around The World is produced by Mama Lisa's World, where we believe sharing our cultures will help bring the world closer together.

We hope this app will help foster a love of international Lullabies!
