ALEGRIA REVIEW:
“New Kindie for Hispanic Heritage Month ”
full article

 

"Like its title, the album exudes joy, joy for the soul-feeding stuff of life: community, diversity, adventure, nature, discovery, and culture."

"The album immediately projects a collaborative, global sound featuring many heavy-hitters in the Kindie recording world such as Elizabeth Mitchell, Samuel Torres, Dan Zanes and Claudia Eliaza to name a few. The instrumentation and arrangements are solidly in the traditional folk music of Latin America which gives the album a satisfying sonic depth, music coming from a respected and treasured heritage."

"Soulful, personal and universal at the same time ¡Alegria! is a beautiful album definitely worth discovering as a family. Check it out!"

 

 

Musical ¡Alegria! from Sonia de los Santos

full article


“While there is power in happiness, ¡Alegria! also celebrates the resiliency of happiness. Whether it’s monarch butterflies (“Mariposa Montuna”) or rabbits (“Hey Little Bunny”) or the unending love of parents (“Wherever You Go”), the sheer endurance of these things offer hope and inspiration every day."

"Sonia asserts that our differences should bring us together as a community, not divide us. Basically, that would result in Alegría for all."
