Little Taste of Torah, the most recent recording (2009) from Peter & Ellen Allard, showcases these outstanding artists at an entirely new level. Published by Sounds Write Productions and produced and mixed by Scott Leader, Little Taste of Torah is Jewish kid's music at the cutting edge. Fourteen new, original songs reflect the Allard's growing maturity and sophistication as Jewish educators and musicians, while remaining true their roots as writers of Jewish children's music that is easy to sing, high energy, and really FUN! The sparkling, state-of-the-art digital production makes these songs come alive with a vibrant energy that, if you have seen Peter and Ellen perform live, you will recognize as uniquely theirs. Several of these tunes - "Shofar Blast," "Shake, Shake, Shake," and "Baby Moses in a Basket" to name just a few - became instant classics after being introduced at Hava Nashira, and are now widely taught and sung in Jewish schools across North America.
If you are looking for the very best in Jewish children's music, look no further than Little Taste of Torah!
