"¡Uno, Dos, Tres con Andrés!" - Children's Music Album By Andrés Salguero Review!


RESTON, VA -- Award-winning family music favorite Andrés Salguero will release a new album -- an ebullient celebration of Latin culture titled ¡Uno, Dos, Tres con Andrés! -- in April, to honor El Día de los Niños.
Andrés has posted a new music video below, based on the song "If I Had a Mariachi" from ¡Uno, Dos, Tres con Andrés!
The "If I Had a Mariachi" video was shot at La Plaza Garibaldi (Mexico City's traditional home of mariachi) and other Mexico City locations, featuring local children and real mariachi musicians in a fantastic display of instrumental virtuosity.
A native of Colombia (now living in the Washington, DC area), Andrés Salguero brings an authenticity to his work that simply can't be matched by musicians who weren't born and raised south of the border. In ¡Uno, Dos, Tres con Andrés! Andrés takes families on a fun-filled, high-energy musical tour of countries such as Mexico, the Dominican Republic, Colombia, and Argentina, with an emphasis on experiencing the real music of each region -- salsa, bachata, plena, mariachi, and more -- while learning mucho Español along the way.
Says Andrés Salguero, "As a musician who has played many types of Latin music, I don't want to make songs that may perhaps sound a little Latino but are, in reality, only a pastiche of 'Latin' sounds. I want to make songs that, on their own, are each great exemplars of the genre. I want grown-ups who are familiar with this music to say, 'This is the real stuff.'"
¡Uno, Dos, Tres con Andrés! will be available online at www.123andres.com, cdbaby.com, and iTunes.


Our personal review of "Uno, Dos, Tres Con Andres":
My three children and I really had a lot of fun listening to Andres Salguero and his band play music that I grew up listening to in southern California. When our neighbors would have a get together or party, they would play music similar to the music on "Uno, Dos, Tres Con Andres." I am so blessed to be able to share this music with my children, and to teach them to listen to all kinds of music, and to embrace other cultures.

Our favorite songs are: "Hola Amigo," "Salta, Salta," "If I Had a Mariachi," "La Clave," "Love Song," and "O Papa." My children really love music, and we listen to all kinds and types. We are careful of the lyrics, as they are all under seven years of age. But they listen to just about anything. They can't get enough of Uno, Dos, Tres Con Andres! As soon as the CD ends, they ask me to play it again!
