About The Atlas
The Musical Geography Atlas for Kids is a collection of 12 specially created songs by Jānis Lūsēns and Loreta Kalniņa. It’s a journey through 12 countries – Mexico, Peru, Greenland, England, Italy, Latvia, Congo, Egypt, Russia, India, Australia, Japan – in song, both to listen to and to sing along with. There are two versions of each song – in Latvian and in the language of the respective country.
The Musical Geography Atlas for Kids contains three parts – a piano score of the authors’ 12 songs, an illustrated book with song lyrics in Latvian and in the languages of the countries from the Atlas, and two CDs – one for piano and voice in Latvian, the other for piano and voice in the languages of the 12 countries included in the Atlas.
The Atlas allows children to discover a little of the magic of our planet through songs and text, and encourages them to explore the world around – from geography to science, history to foreign languages and other topics.
It is suitable for children of preschool and primary school age.
The Musical Geography Atlas for Kids was created with the support of the Kultūr Elpa program of the Latvian State Cultural Capital Foundation.
