Cerebral palsy girl's dream album brings animals to life
Ability and inclusion have come together in a new children’s album that is collaboration between a young girl with cerebral palsy and a Sydney singer/songwriter.
Children’s musical group, Coco and the Cockatoos with Jane Walker and 10-year old Coco Espie have produced ‘Wild Life’ – a first offering from their newly formed music group that reflects Coco’s dream to make music, despite her disability putting many hurdles in her path.
Every track on the album explores animals real and imagined with insights delivered by Walker’s detailed approach to researching and writing songs, inspired by Coco’s ideas and passion. The album is an adventurous exploration of many animals from camels, emus, kangaroos and tigers to roosters, dolphins, dogs, crocodiles and unicorns. The album is available now on Spotify and Apple Music.
