Sleep is precious - and dreams are sacred! The lullabys «Slumberland» sung originally in Swiss dialect sound as if they were ancient tunes. Roland Zoss, Swiss childrens singer and novelist composed this touching album and plays it with musicians from Ireland, Persia, Sweden and Austria and Switzerland. They bring us to the place we all come from: to the land of our childhood. The voices are done by Shirley Grimes and Roland Zoss.
