Latin Grammy-nominated Sonia de los Santos teaches students about instruments and Latin rhythms, music, and culture though conversational videos and songs performed in English and Spanish.

Born and raised in Monterrey, Mexico, Sonia was born with a smile on her face (that’s what her mom always says) and she can easily find the things in the world that bring her joy. Through her music, she shares some of the themes that make her happy: migrating butterflies, waking up early, wildflowers, maracas, being grateful to her parents, playing with her band, and of course, singing about birds! These songs in Spanish and English are inspired by various Latin American rhythms including son jarocho, cumbia, gaita, currulao and huayno hailing from Mexico, Colombia and Peru as well as the North American folk traditions from the United States.

This unique virtual concert and video series also includes songs that reflect her experiences growing up in Mexico and moving to another country, learning about other cultures, and in the process, feeling closer to her own heritage. Messages of joyful community music making and cultural bridge building will inspire and excite children and grownups of all backgrounds.

NOTE: This program available FEB 15-MAR 15 only.
