Review and Giveaway: The Mama Doni Band "Chanukah Fever" CD


Fun and silly, funky and happy are the best words to describe the music on Mama Doni's latest album, "Chanuka Fever: 12 Macca Beats for The Whole Family."

Mama Doni, aka Doni Zasloff Thomas, is a talented and hip mother of two young children, who has been immersed in Jewish life and music since she was a little girl. Sharing her passion with her preschool music students inspired Doni to start writing and recording her own songs, and in 2008 Mama Doni released her first album, "I Love Herring."

Winners of the Simcha Award at the 2008 International Jewish Music Festival, Amsterdam, The Mama Doni Band serves up happy joyful music in a wide variety of styles from reggae to rock with blends of Klezmer and even disco along with a few other genres mixed in.

My "review panel" (aka, my munchkin boys) and I were quite excited to listen to this cd. After all, who can resist some "good toe-tapping, hand clapping, all-out jumping and wiggling, goofy smiles ear to ear," music?? And that is exactly what Mama Doni has created, in my humble opinion (and my review panel's opinions!)

We had fun, sang along, giggled and grooved. That's what I love about this music....it makes my kids "happy in their tummies." And those words makes this mommy happy in her heart.

You can buy the Mama Doni's "Chanuks Fever" CD online  and put some smiles and "happy" in your families "tummies" too!
