Didi Pop Goes to Hawaii CD Review and *Giveaway*


Fast becoming one of L.A.’s hottest kids’ musicians, Deborah Poppink – aka DidiPop – invites families to join her on a vacation to Maui with her new CD, DidiPop Goes to Hawaii. Allowing her own distinctive artistry to blossom in the gentle atmosphere of the tropical Hawaiian Islands, DidiPop encourages kids and their caregivers to joyfully dance, sing, laugh, and feel the “Aloha Spirit” while picking up some good information about the Hawaiian alphabet, mangos and the hula!

Co-produced by Deborah Poppink and renowned indie producer/musician Brad Jones (Jill Sobule, Josh Rouse) and recorded with a first-rate team of Nashville musicians, DidiPop Goes to Hawaii is a musical travelogue inspired by Deborah’s actual visits to the Aloha State with her own family. The album captures every subtle nuance of their Hawaiian adventures, from the excitement of the plane ride (“Wowie Gazowi”) to enjoying the lovely beaches (“Kapalua Bay”) to riding the steam train around Maui (“Sugar Cane Train”), to reading road signs and trying to pronounce the words (“The Hawaiian Alphabet Song”).

About Deborah Poppink (aka DidiPop) 

An award-winning songwriter, performer, and music teacher, Deborah Poppink’s resume includes more than 350 compositions, including several for such film and TV projects as The X-Files and the Jack and Jill show.  With 28 stamps on her passport, Deborah has collected a treasure trove of unique experiences playing and teaching music in such exotic locales as Bali, Montreal, Laos, Turkey, Belize, Tahiti, Morocco and Malaysia, in addition to performances at such L.A. clubs as The House of Blues and McCabe’s. Deborah’s “The Cool Alphabet Song” won a John Lennon Songwriting Contest Award (2009).

ace and friends thoughts: Anything that reminds me of Hawaii, I'm in. DidPop goes to Hawaii definitely DOES NOT disappoint. It takes you on a *virtual* vacation. I guess a virtual vacation is better than no vacation at all, especially during this time of year in the Midwest.  The music is so enjoyable and very DANCEABLE (hula dance-style). An A+ in my kids as well as my eyes. We absolutely love Wowie Gazowie (Goin' to Maui), I Like Pig (super cute - check out the video above) and Kapalua Bay ('cuz I love Kapalua!). Now... who would like to send me on a FREE trip to Hawaii?!? Anyone? I guess, for now, I will settle for listening one more time to DidiPop goes to Hawaii!
