While we were expecting our dear Esha, we hunted the internet for Konkani songs on the internet but could not find any. We had to settle for a few (just a couple) of broken Konkani songs we knew but were able to manage with a mix of Konkani and English. These days Esha has caught up on English rhymes.
Below a collection of a few Konkani songs for babies/kids ... perhaps would be helpful to expecting parents.
Yo Re Cherda Dhavnu : Konkani Kids Song to motivate your little one to eat better. "Come running to me dear; Come with your milk and rice; Eat your milk and rice well; Grow bigger and stronger !"
Uth Re Krishna Velu Jello : Konkani Kids Song to gently wake up your little one
Purr Purr Re Kanna Gayi Mhashi : Konkani Lullaby to induce your baby to sleep
Phanther Phude Uttanu :A wake up song in Konkani for your toddler encouraging him/her to get up at dawn and complete the days routine: brush teeth, prayer, breakfast, school etc.
Paav Nandan Paav Nandan :Popular Konkani Kid's song to wean your fussy eater away from playing outdoors and get him / her to eat something ! Sung by Late Shri Surendra Prabhu and Gayatri Mallya
Kao Kao Yette Yette : Konkani Kid's Song about the activities of a peacock ?
Jo Jo Re Jo Bala : A mellow song to praise your child while also inculcating a sense of devotion to God.
Gongo Aylo Gongo : A playful kids song in Konkani. Best sung when chasing them around the house, playfully scaring them dressed up as a ghost !

Akka Makka Taak Nakka : Funny Konkani Kid's song about siblings, perhaps a boy and an older girl. The boy insists on having his sister share her "kelyan phodi" (fried plantain fritter) with him rather than buttermilk !
