Songs from South Africa this Saturday on the Hilltown Family Variety Show

Grenadilla’s Debbie Lan plays
‘Songs from South Africa’
on the Hilltown Family Variety Show this weekend.

Winner of a Parents Choice Gold Award, Grenadilla brings the sunny sounds of Cape Town to their music. Tune in on your FM dial, or listen live via streaming audio at http://www.valleyfreeradio.org.

The Hilltown Family Variety Show presents Guest DJ Debbie Lan, from the award winning band Grenadilla, (pronounced “gren-a-dill-a”, the South African name for passion fruit) this Saturday, May 19th from 9-10am on Northampton radio station 103.3FM WXOJ-LP  (Valley Free Radio), and may also be heard online on the Hilltown Family Variety Show podcast immediately following the broadcast.  Having grown up in Cape Town South Africa, Debbie will share some of her favorite songs from South Africa, as well as songs from Grenadilla’s newest CD, Can’t Wait, winner of a Parents Choice Gold Award.

After the birth of her daughter in 2000, Debbie started writing the songs that were floating around in her head, and in 2009 Grenadilla was born. The core band members are Debbie on piano and lead vocals, Jodi Palinkas and Leah Glennon on vocals and pennywhistles, AnneMarie Callan, Natasha Williams and Brittany Sacash on vocals. Grenadilla’s music is layered voices with Kwela flavored rhythms,
 a touch of Cape Town jive and a hint of the blues. It features instruments traditional to the street music of Cape Town such as pennywhistles and saxophones, as well as the piano, drums and percussion, guitars, the bass, organs, a melodica and a balafon.

Perhaps growing up in apartheid South Africa surrounded by a vibrant musical culture set the stage for this music and the underlying themes of unity, diversity, community and tolerance. With a passion for kwela music and layered, lush vocals, Debbie colors her songs with the sounds and rhythms of the street music of her childhood, a worldly fusion of voices, percussion, pennywhistles and Debbie’s signature piano style. Her lyrics are a powerful celebration of life, friendship, connection and joyfulness and a reflection of the possibilities of love and growth that surround us everyday.

Music to Move to this Saturday on the Hilltown Family Variety Show

Sukey Molloy Brings Music to Move to
to the Hilltown Family Variety Show this Weekend!

Tune in on your FM dial, or listen live via streaming audio at http://www.valleyfreeradio.org.

With NAPPA, Children’s Music Web, Preferred Choice, and Mom’s Choice Awards proudly in hand, children’s singer/songwriter Sukey Molloy is delighted to be a Guest DJ for a special “Music to Move To” radio broadcast of Hilltown Family Variety Show on Northampton radio station WXOJ-LP  (Valley Free Radio) on Saturday, April 28 at  9:00 a.m. and Sunday, April 29 at 7:00 a.m. and may also be heard online on the Hilltown Family Variety Show podcast immediately following the airing on Saturday.

As a developmental movement educator, former professional modern dancer, and creator of three children’s CDs and the Sukey’s Circle DVD series for children,  Sukey Molloy specializes in music and movement styles the whole family can enjoy.  Her Hilltown Family Variety Show segment will offer an hour of fun songs to move to, along with tidbits on the benefits of movement alternatives in daily family living.  A wide range of songs from the U.S., the Caribbean, France, and Africa, along with four of Sukey’s own songs, will get listeners up and moving along!  Featured in Sukey’s segment will be musical selections by Tom Chapin, Brent Holmes, Dr. W.K. Amoaku, Dan Zanes, Alain Schneider, Jeffrey Friedberg, Coalishun, and Laurie Berkner, along with Sukey’s own “Jump Down Turn Around,” “Action Chant,” “Raindrops,” and “If I Had Hands.”  Sukey Molloy will also read her original tale, “The Story  of Little Flame in the Arctic.”

Sukey Molloy notes, “I thoroughly enjoyed putting this radio show together!  I’m very energized by the show’s ‘Music to Move To’ theme, and I’m eager to share all the songs and movement tidbits that will be aired. I’m also excited to read aloud, for the very first time, “The Story of Little Flame in the Arctic.”  It is based on my “Little Flame in the Arctic” song and features the melody throughout, with many special sound effects and a visit from the Great Arctic Wind.  Be sure to tune in!” 

ABOUT SUKEY MOLLOY

Trained as a professional modern dancer in New York City, Sukey Molloy performed and toured as a member of the Solomon’s Company/Dance and went on to study developmental movement with former Olympian, Garland O’Quinn, Ph.D., and infant development at the School for Body Mind Centering with Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen.  Sukey began designing and teaching music and movement programs in 1985 and, in 2005, launched her own Nyack, NY-based PlayMove&Sing, Inc. program of “Mommy & Me” and pre-K classes and teacher training workshops.  By 2007, Sukey had created the Sukey Molloy (Circle Song) Show, charming young audiences in live appearances with programs filled with musical storytelling, stuffed felt characters, and fun, interactive songs.   Coming next from Sukey Molloy, in fall 2012, will be a new lullaby album, I Am Sleepy!

Carole Demas of WPIX-TV’s beloved program, The Magic Garden, praised Sukey Molloy as “soothing and patient, assuring to parents about the welfare and education of the very young.” School Library Journal lauded Sukey for “striking the right balance of simplicity, bright graphics, and repetition” and described her DVDs as “a wonderful story time resource.”  Sukey’s award-winning body of work includes the CDs Circle Songs! with Sukey Molloy (2005; Children’s Music Web Award, Parent to Parent Adding Wisdom Award), I Like to Sing! with Sukey Molloy (2007; NAPPA Honors Award), and two Sukey’s Circle! DVDs (2009 and 2010; NAPPA Honors Award, Moms’ Choice Gold Award, Preferred Choice Award, NAPPA Rising Star Commendation).  Her newest album, I Am Happy!, will be released on April 24, 2012.
