In a global collection of old soothing melodies you will find the lullabies we sing to our children more often than not are filled with threatening creatures of the dark and unknown.

There is a certain beauty putting devotion in doing things you know or believe you can't. The quality of a wholehearted attempt has an ability to shine through flaws and create it's own perfection.

Language in a play gather bare stripped sing-a-longs by people who do not know the language in wich they try to replicate sounds, form words and record their own version of a given lullaby.
