Raffi Cavoukian is well known for the music he makes for young
children... Many parents today were brought up with that
music and are now sharing it with their kids. I spent many a
day in the car singing Baaaaaaby Baluuuuuga to my littles and am so
completely THRILLED to have the chance to talk to him on this
It was so much fun getting to know Raffi! He
candidly shares his story of singing folk music to adults, to
sharing songs with children - learn more about him by clicking

and the fun he has when he gets to entertain them.
Raffi is a social activist, and shares about the Center For
Child Honouring he founded near his home on Salt Springs
Island. The mission of the centers invites people to "be a
part of the global movement that views honouring children as the
best way to create sustainable, peacemaking societies."
And of course, we talk about some of my favorite songs!
I am so grateful he took the time to talk to me.
