Moona Luna

 
 

“What was missing was a soundtrack for bilingual/bicultural Latino kids. The four-member band has done it both musically and lyrically, mixing Mexican folk and cumbia with a rock sensibility and alternating smoothly between English and Spanish. ” – New York Daily News

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

¡Hola!

We are Moona Luna.

the kindie group that the New York Daily News says is providing “the missing soundtrack for bilingual/bicultural kids.”  After making a splash on the family music scene with their accordion-driven, Latin-inspired debut album, Piñata Party (2011), Moona Luna delivered something fresh in its sophomore album,Vamos, Let’s Go! (2013). Songwriter and bandleader, Sandra Velasquez, found inspiration in American pop hits of the 50’s and 60’s, and staying true to her bilingual mission, crafted Spanish and English lyrics for each song. Moona Luna has performed all over the country – from the National Mall in Washington D.C. to Madison Square Park in New York City. Their third studio album, celebrates their Latin roots and draws on broader musical influences from the African Diaspora. The album’s ten upbeat songs chronicle a family bus adventure through South America. P A N O R A M A, was released on January 29, 2016 and won a Parents’ Choice Award.

P A N O R A M A invites listeners along a family bus trip through South America. Complex, layered rhythms reflect the richness of the varied cultural landscapes, while the lyrics revolve around family time and enjoying new experiences together. While P A N O R A M A has some classic Latin rhythms that fans will recognize from Moona Luna's previous albums, it also includes broader rhythmic influences inspired by the African Diaspora.
