Raffi is a singer, songwriter, producer, author, lecturer, and tireless advocate for children. He is best known for his work as a children’s entertainer whose string of gold and platinum-selling recordings in North America includes his classic song, “Baby Beluga”. Once called “the most popular children’s singer in the English-speaking world” (Washington Post) and “Canada’s all time children’s champion” (Toronto Star), Raffi is also a recipient of the Order of Canada and the United Nations’ Earth Achievement Award. He has never advertised to children or made any commercial endorsements aimed at kids. His commitment to treating his young fans with respect changed society’s outlook on music made for children.

“It’s fun to be singing for children and families again,” says Raffi. “As well as singing many of my fans’ favorites, I look forward to sharing a song or two from my new album, Love Bug.”

In 2010, Raffi founded The Centre for Child Honouring on Salt Spring Island, BC. With the motto “Respecting Earth & Child,” the Centre is at the heart of a global movement that views honouring children as the best way to create sustainable, peacemaking societies

Recently, Raffi published a new book for adults, Lightweb Darkweb, about the critical need to reform social media, especially for young users. As well, he co-founded the Red Hood Project, a grassroots movement for consumer protection for young users.

In July 2014, Rounder Records released Love Bug – Raffi’s first new kids’ album in 12 years. A collection of 16 songs, this thoughtfully crafted body of work engages children in a broad range of themes including love, nature, playtime, chores, and teamwork – music to charm the whole family!
