More About Kira: In the kindie music world, Kira Willey breaks through with her unique, two-in-one albums that blend upbeat, danceable music with get-up-and-move yoga inspiration. In October 2011, this innovative singer-songwriter and founder of Fireflies Musical Yoga for Kids from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, released her second CD, Kings & Queens of the Forest: Yoga Songs for Kids Vol. 2. The collection of 13 joyful folk/pop originals also features 13 bonus Yoga Tracks with Kira’s instructional voiceovers. Included in the album is a lyric booklet that guides parents with illustrations of Kira’s kid-friendly yoga routines.
Kira grew up in a musical family – her brother sings the bass vocal on the track “Let the Sun Shine In” – and her passion for music began when she started to play the violin at age five. Initially she composed “grown-up” tunes, but after teaching kids’ music and yoga classes, she realized children’s songs were her calling. In 2003 Kira became certified to teach yoga to children, and founded Fireflies Musical Yoga for Kids. Two years later, she released her first album, Dance for the Sun: Yoga Songs for Kids, which garnered many music-industry accolades, including the Independent Music Award for Best Children’s Album. In 2009, Dell featured her song “Colors” in a worldwide media campaign, which earned her fans around the globe.
Kira plays concerts, conducts workshops, and teaches her innovative musical yoga program at yoga studios, schools, and family-friendly venues all over the Northeast. Her new album, Kings & Queens of the Forest, which has won a Parents’ Choice Award and two Independent Music Awards, is available on iTunes, CDBaby.com, and her website, www.firefliesyoga.com.
“Sing, dance, and do yoga with the entire family with Kings & Queens of the Forest, joyful songs that kids age two to nine will love. Some of the songs (“Roller Coaster,” “Let the Sun Shine In”) will get you and your kids moving fast, while others (the soothing “Mama Nature” and the title track “Kings & Queens of the Forest”) will help kids grow calm. Willey’s instructions are as clear and lovely as her singing voice.” -Yoga Journal, September 2012
