From the Gumbo Pot Stirring Up Tasty Tunes


Winner of a Silver Honors Parents’ Choice Award.

This album is a spicy musical gumbo of Louisiana songs for children.

“The yummy ingredients in this rich musical gumbo include the spicy Louisiana lilt in Johnette Downing’s voice, and irresistible Cajun and Creole rhythms in playfully evocative songs about gators, skeeters, crawfish and the Cajun werewolf the Loup Garou.”
— Lynne Heffley, The Los Angeles Times
