Lucky Diaz sings Spanish songs that kids and their parents will love.

Adelante is the new CD by Grammy-award winning Lucky Diaz and The Family Jam Band. If you’re familiar with Lucky Diaz and their music, it will come as no surprise that the band has been nominated for a Latin Grammy again this year! These energy-packed songs wrap kids in Spanish and culture, creating an excellent musical and language experience.

Today’s language learners have sophisticated musical taste. Their wide exposure to different types of music makes it challenging to find Spanish songs they like at an appropriate level. They may be learning opposites or animals in Spanish, but that doesn’t mean they want to listen to music for preschoolers. That is one of the reasons I’m so excited about Adelante. Listeners of all ages will love the contemporary sound of Lucky Diaz and The Family Jam Band.

Lucky Diaz and the Family Jam Band has been described by the New York Times as “indie pop-rock for families.” They make great music, first and foremost. True to Lucky Diaz’ life experience, Spanish is essential to these songs. He was born in San Antonio, grew up in Miami and California and built his musical career from Los Angeles. The songs on Adelante have a strong base in his Chicano heritage and the rich Latino culture of his daily life.
