CD Revew - Didipop Goes to Hawaii

About the CD
Fast becoming one of L.A.’s hottest kids’ musicians, Deborah Poppink – aka DidiPop – invites families to join her on a vacation to Maui with her new CD, DidiPop Goes to Hawaii. Allowing her own distinctive artistry to blossom in the gentle atmosphere of the tropical Hawaiian Islands, DidiPop encourages kids and their caregivers to joyfully dance, sing, laugh, and feel the “Aloha Spirit” while picking up some good information about the Hawaiian alphabet, mangos and the hula!

Co-produced by Deborah Poppink and renowned indie producer/musician Brad Jones (Jill Sobule, Josh Rouse) and recorded with a first-rate team of Nashville musicians, DidiPop Goes to Hawaiiis a musical travelogue inspired by Deborah’s actual visits to the Aloha State with her own family. The album captures every subtle nuance of their Hawaiian adventures, from the excitement of the plane ride (“Wowie Gazowi”) to enjoying the lovely beaches (“Kapalua Bay”) to riding the steam train around Maui (“Sugar Cane Train”), to reading road signs and trying to pronounce the words (“The Hawaiian Alphabet Song”).

An award-winning songwriter, performer, and music teacher, Deborah Poppink’s resume includes more than 350 compositions, including several for such film and TV projects as The X-Files and the Jack and Jill show.  With 28 stamps on her passport, Deborah has collected a treasure trove of unique experiences playing and teaching music in such exotic locales as Bali, Montreal, Laos, Turkey, Belize, Tahiti, Morocco and Malaysia, in addition to performances at such L.A. clubs as The House of Blues and McCabe’s. Deborah’s “The Cool Alphabet Song” won a John Lennon Songwriting Contest Award (2009), and her “The Cool Alphabet Song” video has become one of the most popular children’s music videos on the Internet, receiving nearly 1,000,000 views on YouTube.

My Take on the CD
With wonderful tropical sounds Didipop, brings some great Hawaiaan sounds to her new album to share with all kids. Playing this CD with my daughters brought dancing into our lving room (and even some hula dancing-or what was supposed to be hula dancing). Hnesty though, this CD was a great mix of music and made me feel like sitting back and relaxing (as well as wanting to head to Hawaii myself). My kids were just hapy that they were dancing and having a great time!

All-in-all a great album and one that I would highly recommend!
