Konkani Lullabies/Songs for kids

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 !
Gajja Gajja Mallakka : Another funny Konkani Kid song that could be sung while giving them a bath and an oil massage.
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 !
Jo Jo Srikrishna: Konkani lullaby by Puttur Narasimha Nayak

Usually you will ding the "Download" link under the player (look for the following links in a line: Download - Add to Favorites - Add to Quicklist - Flag as Inappropriate )

The person uploading the files has the option to set if the file can be downloaded; if the file download is diabled, you would not find the Download link. However, most of the songs I have heard from this site are downloadable.

Thanks Anand,
However, with the risks involved in downloading zip files from the internet, people generally do not want to download them. In case you have links to those songs on esnips or youtube, please feel free to share them with us.
