Uno, Dos, Tres con Andres - CD cover art - small¡Uno, Dos, Tres con Andrés!

Bilingual music para la familia

I think it is important for children to have some knowledge of other cultures. After all the United States is one giant melting pot. The new music CD ¡Uno, Dos, Tres con Andrés!  by Andrés Salguero is a great way to immerse children in a new culture in a fun way. The mix of English and Spanish helps little ones learn another language and appreciate other a new music style. Lively and entertaining.

Andrés Salguero’s ¡Uno, Dos, Tres con Andrés! is an interactive celebration of Latin culture for kids and families. Listen to the debut CD – filled with salsa, bachata, plena, mariachi and more – or find a live performance near you.

About AndrésAndres Salguero_guitar laugh_photo credit Jonathan Edelman_72 dpi

Andrés Salguero, one of the most exciting new voices on the family music scene, is going to make you bailar y aprender! A native of Colombia, both his debut CD and his live performances are infused with south of the border sensibilities.

Andrés has deep roots in the Latin music world, with over a decade of experience playing Latin Jazz, Salsa, Norteño and Latin folkloric music. He also brings a depth of musical knowledge, holding a Doctorate degree in music from the University of Missouri-Kansas City.

His carefully crafted songs earned him the first prize in the National Composition Contest in Colombia. In his music, there is always something to listening for, since he creates art with a purpose. In 2010 he co-wrote and produced a play based on interviews with DREAMERS, young immigrants who were brought to the US as children. Andrés’ songs incorporate themes such as immigration and cultural understanding and celebrate the rich Latino heritage in the US.

Andrés had his first studio experience at age 8, recording a full length record with a children’s group. Learning guitar from his father, he absorbed many of the folk traditions from Latin America. A career playing guitar, clarinet and saxophone followed, with Andrés joining numerous groups of all genres, from an opera company to a ska band.

Andrés found his true calling playing Latin family music in 2009. Now he performs his live ¡Uno, Dos, Tres con Andrés! kids’ show more than 200 times each year at venues large and small, from full band performances at the Smithsonian Institution’s Discovery Theater to solo appearances at schools and libraries throughout the country.
