The Full Story

ACSAD

Dedicated to my children and grandchildren

And written for the children (and adults) of the world

Composed live - music and lyrics, one song everyday for 1000 days

from 8 April 2017 to 2 January 2020

This project was an afterthought before embarking on a world record attempt to establish legitimacy in the outcome

And proceeded to be a world record in its own right with the Golden Book of World Records - Longest quotidian feat of composing, producing and publishing children's song incessantly

Music & Lyrics & Singing: Swapna Abraham

My Thoughts When Composing

Adults invariably get to listen to children’s songs, and almost always, on repeat. The songs needed to be more bearable and relatable for the adults as well. The Disney movies have proven children have an appetite for real songs. Bringing a balance between the expectations of children and adults (even for the children), the songs meet midway.

 

Furthermore, I wished for the songs to convey values, virtues and facts about life, with positive messages as much as possible, but also not withholding the truth.

Hide and Seek

What You Can Expect

Songs for kids aged 4-12

Songs about life, their world and the world at large - illusory and factual

Songs that impart values in the young mind

Songs that encourage them to dream

Songs that inspire them

Songs that trigger their imagination

Songs that nurture them and educate them

Songs that help them process their emotions

Loud songs, soft songs, colorful and sad; songs to play, clap, sing, dance and sleep to

Songs to meditate and unwind

 

Songs that also speak to parents, grandparents and caregivers

I've a strong feeling these songs will also resonate with most adults that are just waiting to awaken the child in them. The songs have been composed and rendered in a fashion that will also speak to adults. Since all the songs have positive/ factual/ unbiased messages, it is quite the balm for the soul; as was my experience making them.

 

The author hails from a gospel music background and that influence will be felt in some of the songs, there is no intent to impose, instead a request to foster a tolerance for all.
