Sonia De Los Santos was born and raised in Monterrey, Mexico and since 2007 has been touring the world, singing in English and Spanish, playing guitar, mandolin, and jarana, and lighting up the stage with Grammy Award winning group Dan Zanes And Friends. Now with her own multicultural band, she shares songs from her celebrated album, “Mi Viaje: De Nuevo León to the New York Island” (Parents’ Choice Foundation Gold Award Winner) a collection of songs that reflect on her experiences growing up in Mexico, moving to another country, learning about other cultures, and in the process, feeling closer to her own heritage. This unique concert is filled with original songs, Latin American party tunes and new bilingual versions of American classics, making it a personal, and yet universal, musical story from a soulful and important new voice in family music. Messages of joyful community music making and cultural bridge building will inspire and excite children and grown ups of all backgrounds.
Sonia has been hailed by Billboard as “one of the Latin Children’s music artists you should know” and her music has been featured on NBC’s Visiones, Sirius XM’s Kids Place Live and WXPN’s Kids Corner among others. She has also made numerous appearances as a singer and guitarist on TV shows like ABC’s Good Morning America, CBS’s The Early Show, and Sprout’s The Sunny Side up Show.
“This debut [Mi Viaje] is an instant classic for bilingual families and beyond.” – Billboard
