Product Notes

The album that started it all for Barry Peters - outselling many of the leading children's artist in Australia, the first Canya Dantz CD, is still a massive hit. As one young mum said the other day: "if I don't play her the Whale Wash & Fairies Like Flowers five times a day all hell breaks loose." There are song about trains, whales, fairies, ducks, bikes, trees and lollies - all with a unique Australian storytelling flavour. Canya Dantz is enormously appealling to children. Once in the player your four year old will not let this CD stop playing for a minimum of six months - if you are unlucky it will be a year and you'll send death threats to the artist. But don't be miss lead - although the music is really for the young - the poetry is layered with meaning - children's songs that invite adult to ponder hard. Take the 'Whale Wash Song' as an example - a simple rock dance for children - but why would you wash a whale? To keep it alive when it is stuck on the beach, of course. This is a song that in the simpliest of forms celebrates our protecting of Whales. (Barry lives in the coastal town of Warrnambool, AUSTRALIA - a nursery for the wonderful Southern Right Whale.)
