Earth 03:01
When you’re walking on the land The ground it helps us stand (repeat) When you’re walking on the land And a Canyon that’s so Grand, will crumble into sand When you’re walking on the land. Dance in the Sunshine, Love your Mother Earth Dance in the Garden, Love your Mother Earth Care for the Planet, Love your Mother Earth Treat it with Kindness, Love your Mother Earth When you’re standing on the ground You can see the world is round When you’re standing on the ground You can see the world is round On earth life is abound It’s here we will be found When you’re standing on the ground Dance in the Sunshine, Love your Mother Earth Dance in the Garden, Love your Mother Earth Care for the Planet, Love your Mother Earth Treat it with Kindness, Love your Mother Earth

Fire 03:40
Fire fire burning bright Fire fire light our night Fire fire you’re so hot Fire fire crackle pop Orange and red Yellow and gold Shining so bright Keep back the cold Don’t touch my flame You could get hurt But feel my warmth Come from the earth Fire fire burning bright Fire fire in the sun How are we gonna to get up there? Don’t touch that! Fire fire on the stove Say it with me Don’t touch that Fire fire on a candle What do you do? Don’t touch that! Fire fire in the fire place What? Don’t touch that!

Daad Song 04:17
A-Ha Kya baat hai Wah wah Yeh baat hai If you wanna show some love And you like what they play Give a shout from your heart And give Daad today When the power of raag and Soul makes you shout, Here are some things you can say I hope they help you out A-Ha Kya baat hai Wah wah Yeh baat hai Some people they clap and Others snap their fingers When they hear the virtuosic Fantastic melodic stingers. But raga music and Audience participation Lifts up the vibe and Brings the moment elevation A-Ha Kya baat hai Wah wah Yeh baat hai If they play something nice Like a tihai or a mukra Or a bedam farmaishi Chakradar that leaves you shook You can do more than clap When you're feeling the raga music There's things you can say So make sure you know to use it

Why 05:12
Why is a question that we ask all the time But did you ever stop and ask oo-oh-ah-a-ee? You only have to ask oo-oh-ah-a-ee You only have to ask oo-oh-ah-a-ee You only have to ask oo-oh-ah-a-ee You only have to ask oo-oh-ah-a-ee Why is a word with many vowels inside Oo-oh-ah-a-ee There are always many notes, not just one alone The overtones over the drone If you sing it slowly then you will know Why is a wonderous word If you sing it slowly then you will know Why is a wonderous word Why are you in such a hurry? Everybody sing hurryrryrryrryrryrryrryrry Slow down, you don’t have to worry Everybody sing worryrryrryrryrryrryrryrry No, you don’t have to be sorry Everybody sing sorryrryrryrryrryrryrryrry Swishing deep three pointers like Steph Curry Everybody sing Curryrryrryrryrryrryrryrry Leap up and shout hurray Everybody sing hurrayrrayrrayrrayrrayrrayrrayrray You only have to ask oo-oh-ah-a-ee You only have to ask oo-oh-ah-a-ee You only have to ask oo-oh-ah-a-ee You only have to ask oo-oh-ah-a-ee Why is a question that we ask all the time But did you ever stop and ask oo-oh-ah-a-ee? Why is a word with many vowels inside Oo-oh-ah-a-ee There are always many notes, not just one alone The overtones over the drone If you sing it slowly then you will know Why is a wonderous word If you sing it slowly then you will know Why is a wonderous word If you sing it slowly then you will know Why is a wonderous word If you sing it slowly then you will know Why is a wonderous word

about

Raga Kids was started in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn in 2012 by Trina Basu, Sameer Gupta, and Neel Murgai who all draw from their experience in Indian classical music and many other music forms, including jazz, rock, Western classical and more. They started off writing easy to understand songs for kids written in multiple languages and based on specific ragas and have been singing them in classes for toddlers and family concerts held regularly in the NYC area ever since. This album features the latest Raga Kids songs about the four elements, with traditional Classical Raga pieces preceding three of them, to hear the ragas influence in context; plus a few other songs that are guaranteed to bring a smile to your face!

Remember! 'Ragas' are the moods of Indian classical music and means “that which colors the mind”
