the learning of Mandarin so much more fun and lively! It’s well produced and easily
related to and created by an inspiring mother who wanted to make music that would

About A Little Mandarin
A Little Mandarin features fresh, organic fun for the entire family! The album features a collection of Chinese children’s classics – songs loved by families in China for generations – given new life with a contemporary sound and voice. The 15 tracks fuse rock, pop, dance, ska, and hip hop influences with playful lyrics to make it a unique and fun learning companion for all ages. Featured on Putumayo Kids Presents World Sing-Along.
“China is forefront in the media and schools worldwide now teach Mandarin, yet Chinese culture is limited to the local take-out menu. What do we know of authentic Chinese culture? I want to give every global citizen, young and old, a fresh unprecedented perspective on Chinese language and culture through the universal language of music.”
– Toni Wang, creator of A Little Mandarin.
About the Creator
Toni Wang is a Chinese-American born in Shanghai and living in NYC. Influenced by her father’s classical music background, Toni’s career in technology always found its way back to her passion for music. Deciding to raise her children in a trilingual household (English, Mandarin, and her husband’s native French), she searched for high-quality Chinese children’s music, to no avail, leading to her Aha moment to create it herself. A Little Mandarin music is the first step in her larger vision of introducing authentic Chinese language and culture to a mainstream global audience.by
