With timeless lyrics that will uplift every human, rich trademark melodies, an international band (banjo, bass, cello, fiddle, guitar, piano, and more), and an essential choir of children, Small But Mighty is a powerful sing-along and must-have for all kids, parents, teachers and educators. French, English, Mandarin, Portuguese.
Evaluation comments from our NAPPA Awards Music Judge:
“On her fifth CD, Ginalina expands her worldly musical vision to include songs sung in French, Portuguese, and Mandarin (the latter being particular personal since it reflects her Asian heritage) along with incorporating instruments like a “tres” (a Cuban guitar) and a “cavaquinho” (a Portuguese guitar). Her tunes continue to touch of topics involving nature (“One More Seed,” “Save The Mighty River”), the seasons (“Winter Spring Summer Fall”), inclusiveness (“Everyone On The Passenger Train”), and family (“My Family Keeps Me Warm”). The acclaimed Canadian family musician is especially adept with her uplifting songs of encouragement (“I’m Brave,” “Shine Like A Northern Lights,” and the title tune). Ginalina’s neighborly vocals and her easygoing acoustic-based musical style make Small But Mighty a mighty wonderful album that you’ll want to welcome into your home.”
