On the most auspicious day of 21st of March 2013, the German music group Kundala have launched their third CD ¨Hey, wach auf ¨ (Hey, wake up!) containing 14 songs in German, about elephant and mouse, caterpillar and butterfly, wind, sun, a fountain, that lives in all of us, a magical tree... songs that can go in every kindergarden or school, to bring light to children, their families, and teachers.
The CD includes a colourful booklet with all lyrics, chords and beautiful paintings.
The CD was also pre-launched during the German Bookfair in Leipzig last weekend:
The story of KUNDALA started in 2007, when Katri Borm and Jutta Hille-Ostermann got together and started to compose, record und publish music made for children. The idea was to introduce the culture of yoga and meditation through playful and joyful music.
Today KUNDALA has grown into a project including many musicians and artists from three countries:
