Sara sent us this song with the note: "I kind of made up 'Arrurú' and changed the melody." Arrurú means "lullaby" or "go to sleep". This song is a great example of how you can turn a word or a phrase into a lullaby.

Many thanks to Sara Quintanar from Music with Sara for sharing this song and recording with us!

Sara wrote, "I wrote the song arrangements, and a friend of mine Albert Romero played the violin. The melody is familiar, and I've heard the song in varied versions, but my daughter would hum it like this, so I recorded it like this!"
