Tune of the Day: Toutouic

Traditional French lullaby

This traditional lullaby comes from Brittany, the Celtic region in the North-West of France. Its title, in the Breton language, can be compared to the French expression fais do-do, which is itself a shortening of the French verb dormir (to sleep). This is used primarily in speaking to small children, and is roughly equivalent to the American English “beddy-bye”.
