For some artists, doing a kids' album is an opportunity to have some fun, sit back and relax a little. After all, they're kids, right? Keep it simple, watered down even. Not Ladysmith Black Mambazo. Their Songs from a Zulu Farm is not so much a kids' album as a vibrant, loving tribute to the tradition of Zulu children's songs. Forget simple and watered down: This is some of Ladysmith's most diverse material, ranging from their classic cascades of velvet harmonies to the (dare we say?) sassy spoken word call-and-response of "Uthekwane" to the best rendition of "Old McDonald" ever.
