Cashew Lullabies

Cashew LullabiesMy brother and I have taken it upon ourselves to musically educate our two nephews (and forthcoming niece). My personal efforts began in December '06, when, my sister seven-months pregnant with her first child, I put together a two-disc set of "alternative lullabies." The first disc is loosely female-themed, and the second loosely male-themed, but the overall goal was just an eclectic mix with a relaxed mood and no overt "baby" vibe. Enjoy it late at night, or at any other time.
