KidTunes: Moona Luna - Piñata Party
Piñata Party by Moona Luna is an exciting addition to the KidTunes library; it is a bi-lingual fiesta with a distinct Latin beat. Songs written by Sandra Lilia Velásquez are a joyful celebration of life with an infectious, get-up-and-dance score. In fact, the first and last tracks on the album are “¿Quires Bailar?” and “Would You Like to Dance?,” the same song—about a cow in search of a dancing partner—in Spanish and English.
Kids listening to Piñata Party are certain to pick up a little Spanish (or English) along with positive messages like “Tomorrow’s Another Day (Mañana Es Otro Día)” and “Hay Que Trabajar (We All Have to Work)” which emphasizes not only the need to work but the need to relax—and how much more enjoyable relaxing is when one has been working.
Most of the songs are bi-lingual, arranged so that translations are easy to pick up. Before long, kids will be saying “Mama, No Me Quiero Dormir (Mama, I Don’t Want to Sleep)” at bedtime, and the more welcome “Te Amo (I Love You).” It’s never too early to expose children to world music or foreign languages. Moona Luna does both, while kids have fun with the lively, irresistible Piñata Party.
