Biography

Here are two things you should know right off about Dan Zanes, two things that set him apart from the huge and festive field of people who have in the past few years begun making music for families and people of all ages in a way that is, frankly, changing the face of America, or the sound of it, at least. First, he is making homemade family music and encouraging similar behaviors in friends ... Read more in Amazon's Dan Zanes Store

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Nueva York! is maybe the most all-around likable family record of 2008. The crazy-haired former Del Fuego has once again packed a panoply of A-list players onto the bill (see “Colas” featuring the, always impressive, Marc Ribot, and “La Bruja” with Lila Downs). For non-Spanish-speakers, the appeal of the playful, all-Spanish Nueva York! is its open invitation to vibe along with a multitude of hip styles free of the the need to feel lyrically on top of things (always a relief for parents). Spanish speakers, meanwhile, get to experience the full fiesta, wackadoo lyrics (see “Pollito Chicken”) and all. Cumbia, son, baquata, and merengue rhythms propel these these 19 tracks but there’s no need for genre-parsing: each song, in its way, is a freewheeling musical pinata. -Tammy La Gorce

Product Description

Children's favorite Dan Zanes follows his 2007 Grammy Award winning CD Catch That Train with a collaboration with Latino musician friends from New York. These family songs, all sung in Spanish, represent various styles including son jarocho, cumbia, aguinaldo, bailecito, nueva canci¢n and merengue. Featured guests include: Lila Downs, Daphne Rubin-Vega, The Villa-Lobos brothers, Marc Ribot and Afro-Colombian roots ensemble La Cumbiamba Eney‚.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fanaticos think it's fantastico!! June 22, 2008
Format:Audio CD
My son is a Dan Zanes groupie (he's been to six of his shows).He's been listening to him since before his second birthday and has been looking forward to new music for quite some time. My son is half Cuban, so hearing DZ sing in Spanish is very significant for him. It's a welcomed addition to our Dan Zanes and Friends collection. In short, this cd is like a big party for my three and a half year old, yet sophisticated and cool enough for his parents!!! Viva Dan and Friends!! Our favorite tracks: Colas and Polito Chicken...

5.0 out of 5 stars Muy Bien! July 18, 2008
Format:Audio CD
We now own all of the Dan Zanes cds and love them all. Nueva York has taken slightly longer to warm up to, but that's only because I don't understand all of the lyrics (my spanish is rusty) so they take longer to learn! I love having the diversity in our music collection. You will not be able to refrain from dancing and clapping along with many of these songs! It's a great "windows down, music turned up" in the car cd. Buy it! And while you're at it, buy all of Dan Zanes' other cds too! My husband and I both have his music on our iPods because we love it as much as our 3 year old son! Dan Zanes offers the best kids/family/folk music out there, hands down.

Dan Zanes and Friends latest release features all that you love about the band: wild, energetic collaborations and quieter songs with tremendous raw beauty. Esta vez, todas las canciones están en español! They've come a long way since "Malti."

You may enjoy this CD if:

---you're interested in fun, party music that the kids will love---and that doesn't drive you crazy!

---other kid-friendly acts drive you nuts and you want to keep Hannah Montana and High School Musical at bay as long as you can.

---you want to broaden your child's outlook and worldview.

Our faves: Son Borinqueno, El Pijul, El Canario, Palo Bonito, Compadre Pedro Juan, Cuida El Agua, El Pescador, Colas, Verde Luz, & Mi Luna. Yikes, that's a lot of favorites! There are not many songs we don't like on the CD. If Pollito Chicken doesn't get you moving, see a doctor!

This collection of favorites from several Latin American countries is, as Dan says in his concerts, his pro-immigration CD. In the liner notes, Dan calls this a "pro-love-your-neighbor" CD. It definitely has that effect. My (very Swedish) 4 year old asks me to translate every song for her and wants to play and sing along. She was once very shy with people who spoke languages she did not understand. Getting some familiarity with Spanish has made her far more comfortable with our non-English speaking neighbors. She tries out a little Spanish on our Colombian and Mexican neighbors, and she is trying to help a Slovakian friend learn English. Thanks, Dan, for giving our kids a great time while provoking interest in Hispanic culture and vital social issues.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very melting pot! September 1, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
My family are big fans of Dan Zanes, so it was an obvious choice to pick up 'Nueva York'. It didn't disappoint. The rhythms and songs are very good and fun to listen to. My son doesn't even understand much Spanish at 4, yet he tries to sing along! The singular thing my husband and I noticed was that the usual members of his group are not present except for his drummer, which surprised us a bit, as Barbara has sung Spanish music with him before, however, we very much enjoy this record.

5.0 out of 5 stars Politics aside, great CD for families... July 20, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I love the concept Dan Zanes has....music for the whole family to listen to together...to dance, sing, and enjoy. My son and I have enjoyed listening to all of his CD's as well as Father Goose.

If you are tired of lame kids CD's you need to listen to Dan Zanes and his friends.

Though, I can not say I agree with the politics behind the CD, the bottom line is the music is great and fun....and most importantly my 1 year old loves it.

Dan Zanes makes great kids music no matter the language or politics.

It is a great CD for the whole family.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite Dan Zanes CD January 3, 2013
By Adriana
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love this CD! I bought it for my daughter, who is 6, but I am the one who listens to this most often. Having grown up in Puerto Rico, many of these songs nostalgically take me back home, but are interpreted with Dan Zane's wonderful, quirky musicality. I especially love Pollito Chicken featuring La Bruja!
