It’s a Piñata Party!
I would like to introduce you to a fantastic new CD by Moona Luna called, Piñata Party! I have already used it in our Spanish for Children classes and immediately the kids were laughing, singing, and bouncing around to Brinca! I especially love this new product because it is a labor of love by another bilingual mom passionate about exposing kids to Spanish!
Moona Luna’s Family-Friendly Bilingual Music arrives March 15.
New Party Music CD Features Guest Artist Dan Zanes Piñata Party, a new CD of bouncy, Latin-inspired bilingual music that perfectly captures the spirit of an outdoor family party, will be released on March 15th by a group of “electrifying” (CMJ) Brooklyn-based musicians daylighting as family music combo Moona Luna. The new CD offers a dozen chunks of delicious and inviting ear candy to engage and satisfy people of all ages. Piñata Party will be available on March 15th from Luchadora Records ($15 SRP; distributed by NewSound Kids).
Moona Luna is the passionate second project of New York-based songwriter Sandra Velasquez and her critically acclaimed Latin band Pistolera. For the last five years, Pistolera has toured extensively, delighting fans of all ages around the globe. During the making of Pistolera’s second album, Velasquez gave birth to her first child. But the experience didn’t slow her down.
In fact, with her daughter as inspiration, Velasquez wrote an album’s worth of songs geared for families. After writing exclusively in Spanish for Pistolera, she decided to make Moona Luna’s songs bilingual so that her simple messages of joy, discovery and perseverance would reach more young ears.
