Le Hoogie Boogie: Louisiana French Music for Children

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
Ever wondered how to sing "The Hokey Pokey" in French? If not, maybe your kids have, and this disc is for them anyway. That's not all they'll learn, either: "L'Arc en Ciel" will help them with their colors, and "A, B, C et 1, 2, 3" will have them counting and chanting the alphabet with a French Lousiana twang before you know it. There are several songs about alligators, of course, as well as a charming ode to lost love entitled "Les Maringouins Ont Tout Mange Ma Belle" "The Mosquitoes Ate My Sweetheart All Up". The music itself is a spicey stew of Cajun fiddle tunes and folksong melodies, all of which is guaranteed to have you and your kids waltzing and stomping furiously...

Doucet's singing voice, as always, is less than inspiring, but c'mon, it's a kid's record. Very highly recommended.

    Great for teaching children French

    As a descendant of French Acadians, I am proud of my heritage and culture. Music is an important part of those and this CD has some of the old songs I heard my grandparents sing along with a few new-to-me tunes that are engaging and whimsical. I bought my grandchildren this CD whenever we took a toddler French class and I am amazed how quickly they picked up the lyrics as well as how much they enjoyed the music.
