Linguistic LingField(s):  Not Applicable

Query:   Dear Linguists: The Albuquerque Biopark recently opened a new exhibit with African animals, and our Education curator suggested we think out of the box when developing educational discovery stations. He suggested a discussion of African language families (!!!! as if we have 20 years with zoo visitors !!!!!). Instead, I am attempting to put together an explanation of the complexity of the clicking sounds used in some African languages, and your site has been a great help. Can anyone tell me where I can find recordings of African children's songs? At this point, I'm not picky about language - as long as they are sub-Saharan African, rather than European languages. I'd like to attempt to teach children a simple song, and show them pictures of people (and then the animals) that live where that song is sung. Sincerely, Lisa Pickens, Docent Rio Grande Zoo
