As the world’s best-selling children’s entertainer, pioneering troubadour Raffi has spent more than four decades delighting successive generations of kids — and their parents — with his playful, exuberant personality and his irresistibly infectious songs.
Raffi is a singer, songwriter, producer, author, lecturer, and tireless advocate for children. He is best known for his work as a children’s entertainer whose string of gold and platinum-selling recordings in North America includes his classic song, ‘Baby Beluga.’ Once called ‘the most popular children’s singer in the English-speaking world’ (Washington Post ) and ‘Canada’s all time children’s champion’ (Toronto Star ), Raffi is also a recipient of the Order of Canada and the United Nations’ Earth Achievement Award. He has published three books and holds four honorary degrees. He has never advertised to children or made any commercial endorsements aimed at kids. His commitment to treating his young fans with respect changed society’s outlook on music made for children.
‘It’s great fun singing for children and families,’ says Raffi. ‘As well as singing many of my fans’ favorites, I look forward to sharing a song or two from my Love Bug album and my new one, Owl Singalong — and to the sounds of all of us singing old favourites from my very first album!’
