I received a copy of Pacha’s Pajamas Volume 1 & 2 in exchange for our honest review
Pacha’s Pajamas is the first and only full-length Children’s Pop Musical. Since it is nature-themed, we sometimes call it Eco-Pop. The soundtrack showcases 55 artist including famous performers and young talent of different generations and cultural backgrounds including Yasiin Bey, Cheech Marin, Talib Kweli, Majora Carter, Gerald C. Rivers, Ta’Kaiya Blaney and Lyrics Born.
The story centers on a little girl with big dreams. One night, the animals and plants on her new pajamas come alive. Entering her dream as a small gorilla, she comes upon an unlikely group of creatures feeling sad about the state of the world. Nature unites to tell its captivating story at a global festival where species have come together to bring balance to the planet. They build a stadium, half land, half water and powered by electric eels. Fun-filled acts include an insect band called The Beetles, a black-eyed pea rapping for a better world and a beaver named Just-in-Time. At the end of the show, Pacha shares an important message for all of nature and humanity.
The story leverages pop culture, music and humor to cultivate social conscience in a playful and inspiring manner. It addresses important topics — environmental sustainability, nature connection, and childhood health and planetary balance. It supports the development of creative expression, living an imagination inspired life and dreaming BIG. This first dream adventure of Pacha calls for kids to be superheros in their community as well as to reconnect with their own nature and Nature itself of which they are a part. The soundtrack has 8 story tracks and 7 songs. Each song has a message for kids and a call to action.
Pasha’s Pajamas is an awesome hip hop musical featuring artists such as Mos Def and Cheech Main. Not only does it have a great music kids can get in to, it also teaches kids to expand their imaginations and follow their dreams. The story completely comes to life and draws you into nature, making you aware of some of today’s important issues. What a fun way to learn and get the kids off the couch!
