Critical Acclaim:
“Rich, varied rhythms… give children an exciting way to connect with other cultures”
—Early Childhood Today (Best Bets)

“Twelve selections from seven Latin American countries include traditional and contemporary songs. While they are sung mostly in Spanish, the lyric sheet includes the English translations. Each piece is introduced in both languages by Emilio Delgado (“Luis” to Sesame Street watchers). Vocals by adult artists, mostly from the countries represented, are liberally interlaced with accomplished children’s voices. Most interesting of all is the variety of indigenous instruments – quitiplas, maracas, charango – many of which are unfamiliar to the average North American ear. A sunny and satisfying introduction to our southern neighbors.” — from Parents’ Choice®
