Your Daily Lick: Kitka

Cradle Songs (Diaphonica)

A collection of lullabies from sundry Eastern European sources — Russia, Romania, and Bulgaria, to name a few — that’s not as kid-friendly as it might aspire to be. The songs are poignant and beautifully sung by women’s vocal ensemble Kitka, but dark undertones and foreign tongues mean children accustomed to the American canon may be loath to cozy up to them.

At the Paramount Theatre (2025 Broadway, Oakland) on December 13. 4 p.m., $10-$40
