Light Within
Melita is a true leader in the current world of spiritual musicians. Melita's songs inspire a profound cosmic connection, while offering a humble and lived road map to healing. They uplift, soothe, and remind the weary human traveller of Source and Beauty. Every aspect of your being and your life will be nourished by these songs.

Rachel K

Melita's songs are the cosmic lullabies that every baby should have sung to them upon entering the world. Her music is the orientation to being a human that you never got when you were born. Her songs are balm for the spirit.

Alexis L

Melita's music is gift- medicine for the heart, mind, and spirit. In this time of planetary shifting, she offers hope and inspiration, a fresh perspective on reality. Melita invites us to open to the beauty of the moment and let life become our teacher. This CD is a must have for every spiritual seeker, parent, child, and human being!

Both of my kids are crazy about Octopretzel, and it has quickly become the classroom favorite at my daughter’s pre-school.  The teachers can’t believe the positive effect the upbeat and playful music is having on the children.  Earth Dream Lullabies, on the other hand, is what we put on while my kids are getting ready for bed.  The soothing and dreamy lyrics and melodies provide all of us with a magical transition that lulls my kids into a deep slumber and provides me with a nightly meditation on the wonder of being alive.

Nothing makes me happier than hearing my two children singing their hearts out in the back seat of the car along with the Octopretzel CD.  They know all the words, and they just sound so sweet together.  Then I took my 3-year-old to our first Octopretzel concert.  The five-part harmonies brought tears to my eyes.  Melita has a special gift with children, and it spills right on over to adults, as well.

Melita is a rock star in our household. Our 3 year old twin girls spend much of their play time listening to the octopretzel CD and creating pretend music class with their animals all lined up in a circle. They take turns "being" melita, their beloved music teacher with the "chocolate hair". As a parent, I love watching how my children take the songs and rhymes they do with melita and bring them into their daily life. I also am a personal fan of her classes and concerts. I secretly know all the words on the octopretzel CD and can be found humming them to myself at all hours of the day. In short, melita is a wonderful performer, teacher and musician.

Earth Dream Lullabies
"Thank you for creating this utterly beautiful children's album. My family will listen to it for many years, and possibly generations to come."

Ahri Golden
co-founder and executive producer of Thin Air Media

Melita's Earth Dream Lullabies will bring joy and sleepy peace to jazzed up kids and their stressed out parents.  Children will love its lovely tunes and spirited words. And Melita's beautiful voice can sooth the rough edges of a hard day; it's lullaby for the weary soul.

It's a rare gift to find music that joyfully appeals to both children and adults. This collection of evocative songs by popular Bay Area performer Melita does just that, as her sometimes soaring, sometimes gentle, always wise lyrics send us on a journey of connection with life, an adventure pulsing with the rhythms and cycles of the Earth.

Melita's music classes are a real treat for everyone. Melita shows amazing enthusiasm and talent for engaging the children (and adults!) in singing, making music, movement, and more. She has such a lovely, charming, almost fairy-like manner, that, combined with her beautiful voice, resonates deeply with children and brings them right into the music with much joy and exuberance. Both of my children have just absolutely loved any kind of musical experience with Melita, be it classes, concerts, or listening to her cds, from pretty much infancy onward. My oldest is eight and still enjoys her music. In fact, Melita has become somewhat of a celebrity in our house. If you have any opportunity to experience music with Melita, I recommend it wholeheartedly.

Melita makes all the parents and kids feel welcome, creative, and ready to jam! The class never feels didactic, but we have all learned songs that we enjoy as a family.

Kate MacGlashan

My son started going to Melita's music classes at age two, and a year and a half later, he still loves it. The kids dance, sing, play instruments, and listen transfixed to Melita's felt-board and puppet stories. The class has an intimate, community feel, with each child greeted by name (in song of course). Melita's music is fun for kids and enjoyable for adults. One of the best kid-centered activities we've found in Berkeley!

Rebecca Brams

Melita's class is sweet, fun and focused. She manages to hold a very calm space while keeping the children thoroughly intrigued with her lovely voice, a variety of whimsical puppets, insruments, and a fun collection of songs. My son keeps asking to go back for more. I have lost track of just how many sessions that we have attended!

Onika Mann

Melita has a lovely voice and her music is thoroughly engaging to kids of all ages (and adults too, for that matter).  It has been a pleasure to see my little guy enjoy her classes at each stage of his development and it always makes me smile when he busts out singing one of the songs he learned from Melita.  Here is a pic of us having fun with the "stick song" at home...

Lela Bachrach

Melita is a masterful singer, songwriter, storyteller, and has a way with kids that is totally engaging and delightful. I don't know who is a bigger fan, my son or me!

You can't put Melita in a box. Her music is folk-fairy-roots-gospel-traditional-innovative and wonderful! It is music for almost any occasion, for sweethearts, for family, for children, and adults of any age. She crosses boundaries and comes from her heart.

Melita's spirit and voice bring joy and magic to whatever she does-audio, live, or her sold out music classes.
Her disc "Delicate Web" has been my kids and our family's favorite for years now; for a while it was the ONLY thing they wanted to hear!  There is a timeless, captivating and universal spirit about her music that has you singing along, whether you know the words or not.
Her live shows are super sweet, attention grabbing, and groovin'...there is a reason she has such a loyal following of parents and kids in the East Bay.

Melita is a MAJORLY talented songstress with one very sweet voice and excellent backup personnel. I have to coin a new genre for a good deal of her material: it is a seamless blend of Celtic and Mediterranean, two "traditional" international folk genres that in her hands seem to be "made for eachother". I call it Celtic/Mediterranean Folk. She makes it sound like it's been in vogue forever, yet I cannot actually think of anyone else whose sound is similar. Early Pentangle comes to mind, but it's not quite that either... Folks, this is the mark of songwriting genius! Her CD, "Delicate Web" has a total of sixteen songs, and there is no filler here. Every song is a gorgeous work of poetic and songwriting art. She appears to be a "well kept secret", and I hope in my own small way to help change that.

Van Casey

Melita's music is sweet and soulful with organic rhythms and playful rhymes. Listening will take you on a global journey over mystical mountains and spacious seas.
