Winter CD for families
Cowichan Valley musician, Cari Burdett has created ‘ Winter’ , a CD that celebrates the winter in song, verse and story. Teamed up with her husband Massimo Pintus, together they provide a child friendly acoustic compilation of songs the whole family will dance and sing along to. Listening to ‘Winter’, you will meet gnomes sleighing down the hill, advent stories, falling snow, swedish songs, jack frost, hand games and other adventures.
Cari grew up singing as a young child with musical theatre and dance. After classical operatic training in Montreal and London, England, she moved to Sweden and incorporated vocal improvisation and pedagogy into her music life. These days Cari performs classical, folk, and improvisation while raising her three children and teaching voice to all ages from her home based music school ‘Lila Music Centre’.
Her popular Parent and Child class celebrates the seasons and festivals with songs, movement and story. Parents often want a CD to bring home to practice and sing along with and it was this inspiration that lead Cari to create this first CD in a series of early childhood collection.
Pintus is an instrument builder working with iron, copper and bronze, while he also is a gifted woodwork designer and makes instruments and the supports for the instruments from locally sourced wood. His creations include glockenspiels, iron rods, gongs, chimes and sound sculptures, these instruments accompany the songs as well as Massimo playing the guitar, balalaika, percussive instruments and lyres.
Winter can be purchased in Duncan at the Duncan Garage, Lila Music Centre, in Vancouver at Banyen Books.
