ABOUT DAN AND CLAUDIA

Grammy award winning children's performer Dan Zanes and Haitian-American music therapist / jazz vocalist Claudia Zanes have been making music with each other since the day they met in 2016. From thrift shop basements to Carnegie Hall, from Brooklyn to Bahrain, the Zanes have been introducing new songs and reconnecting people to the forgotten music of the past for years. Dan has been referred to as "the family-music genre's most outspoken and eloquent advocate" by Time Magazine, his critically-acclaimed music has been featured on Sesame Street, Playhouse Disney, Nickelodeon, HBO Family and Sprout. Over the course of 14 albums, 2 DVDs, 2 picture books, and dozens of videos, he has collaborated with Philip Glass, Lou Reed, Angelique Kidjo, Natalie Merchant, Carol Channing, Sharon Jones, Bob Weir, Debbie Harry, Rosanne Cash, The Blind Boys of Alabama, and many more.

Their love of songs and communal music-making led to an award winning songbook entitled Dan Zanes' House Party: A Family Roots Music Treasury, was released in 2018.

 

ABOUT SONIA DE LOS SANTOS

Sonia De Los Santos was born with a smile on her face (that's what her mom says) in Monterrey, Mexico, and in 2007 started touring the world, singing in English and Spanish, playing guitar and jarana and lighting up the stage with Grammy Award winning group Dan Zanes And Friends.

In 2015 she released her first solo family music album titled "Mi Viaje: De Nuevo León to the New York Island" (Parents' Choice Foundation Gold Award Winner) a collection of songs that reflect her experiences growing up in Mexico, moving to another country, learning about other cultures, and in the process, feeling closer to her own heritage.

Sonia was nominated in 2019 for a Latin Grammy® with her second family music album titled ¡Alegría! and has been hailed by Billboard as "one of the Latin Children's music artists you should know" and "Best Latin Children's Music".
