Need Holiday gift ideas? We have the #Hunktabunkta answer!

The holiday season can get sooo crazy! Thanksgiving, Christmas and Chanukah decorations appear right after Halloween, shopping starts next with Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday and with all the frenzy, it’s hard to find just the right gift for anyone! IMO, there are way important things to think about other than shopping and giving the gift of music would last a lot longer than a plastic toy.  Right? Well, just in time, here’s a suggestion: my newest album, Hunk-Ta-Bunk-Ta HOLIDAYS.

You can purchase it here from my website:,, or stream it on SoundCloud or Spotify.

For other gift suggestions, #Hunktabunkta is proud to be featured in the below guides reviews, blogs and radio programs! Enjoy browsing through some fun and engaging treats!

All Done Monkey: “I confess it is rather misleading to include Hunk-Ta-Bunk-Ta Holidays: Songs and Stories That Celebrate Global Light in a Christmas list, because it encompasses so much more than just Christmas! Of course, there are quite a few Christmas songs here, but there is also music to celebrate Diwali, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Ramadan, and Chinese New Year! So many winter holidays from different religions celebrate light, so this point of unity can be a wonderful avenue to teach children about other beliefs. Tracks on Hunk-Ta-Bunk-Ta Holidays often begin with a brief explanation of the featured holiday and how it is celebrated. We love to put it on in the car when the kids are focused and ready to listen, and it would also be wonderful to use in a classroom. This album is a wonderful way to teach children about the many special days that are celebrated around the world (and in your own neighborhood!).”

Phil’s Picks: “Katherine Dines’ latest HunkTa BunkTa compilation record is a work that will appeal to just as wide a range of listeners as the cultures that it promotes.  That is due in part to its promotion of cultural diversity.  The history lessons connected to the promotion of the world’s varied cultures adds to that appeal.  The record’s music varies just as much as its lessons about the featured cultures, helping it to hold its own even easier against other holiday and even World music records.  Each item noted is important in its own way to the whole of this compilation.  All things considered, they make HunkTa BunkTa Holidays a welcome addition to any family’s holiday music collection. ”
