Raffi has just released “Owl Singalong,” a follow-up to his 2014 CD “Love Bug,” which was his first set of children’s songs in 12 years. The title of the 16-song CD was inspired by the owls Raffi hears outside his home on Salt Spring Island, Canada, and by his grandniece Lucie’s enthusiasm for her stuffed-toy owl. Tunes include “See the Moon” and “The More We Sing Together,” as well as Raffi singing in Spanish in “Somos El Barco” and in French in “Dans La Forêt Lointaine.” $12.99 at
