123 Andrés

123 Andrés is a Latin Grammy Winner for Best Children’s Album in 2016. A native of Bogotá, Colombia, Andrés brings joyful sound, high energy, love of music, and a passion for bilingualism to all of his performances. Before you know it, your kids will be dancing and singing along with him to songs in Spanish and English!

Baby Beats

A creative collaboration between musicians Jamaal, “Mr. Root” Collier and Max Bent, Baby Beats is a kid-friendly musical experience like no other. You’ll learn from these musicians that singing is not the only type of music you can make with your mouth! They’ve got the beat – the magic of beatboxing.
