Lullabies From The Axis Of Evil (2004)

"In his 2002 `Axis of Evil' speech, George W. Bush Singled out Iran, Iraq and North Korea, along with their allies, as the enemies of democracy. Enlisting world support for his war on terrorism, Bush pointed a finger and drew the line between us and them. But Bush forgot one thing. These
enemy states are filled with mothers and children. Our so-called enemies' possess a remarkable capacity for love and warmth in a tradition of lullabies that spans generations of sense and memory. Singers from around the world are brought together singing in English including well known artists like Nina Hagen and Rickie Lee Jones with the traditional lullabies sung by a host of singers from Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine, Syria, Cuba and North Korea.
