Mamma Yamma & Friends

Mamma Yamma

Though I usually leave it up to Drake to report on all the latest developments in kiddie rock, this new CD from Canada’s Mamma Yamma & Friends seems to have slipped under his radar. Since 2007, Kensington Market’s Mamma Yamma, (a giant yam puppet and staple of Kids CBC), has been serving up a bevy of delectable tunes alongside some of Canada’s most popular musicians. Here’s a little more information about the CD:

Starring this country’s favourite yam, puppet sensation Mamma Yamma, Mamma Yamma and Friends showcases original performances by musical superstars such as Ron Sexsmith, Sarah Harmer, Barenaked Ladies, Bedouin Soundclash and Great Lake Swimmers as well as show-stopping original songs from Kids’ CBC puppet stars Captain Claw, Saumon de Champlain and popular host Patty Sullivan.
