The Best Spanish language and bilingual kids albums

Luis Serna
The list author says: "Bilingual and Spanish kids music has been a great and fun tool to help my kids become bilingual. I've never seen a comprehensive list of bilingual or Spanish language children's music, so I've compiled this ongoing list in hopes that you will find it useful.

When looking for bilingual or Spanish language music for kids, I like to follow the same principals of language learning: Generally try for immersion and limit mixed languages in the same verses. My kids tend to love upbeat music they can dance to, so there is a bias toward rhythmic uptempo music."
¡A Bailar! Let's Dance! (Spanish learning songs for kids/Canciones infantiles)

"My kids not only love the Whistlefritz DVDs, but the songs that accompany them.  These songs range in musical styles (e.g., cumbia, merengue, bachata, pop).  There are original songs as well as covers of classic children's songs.  All the songs are done by Jorge Anaya who has a great voice."
Cha, Cha, Cha (Spanish learning songs/Canciones infantiles)

"Another great entry from Whistlefritz and Jorge Anaya.  Lots of great up-tempo kids music with a variety of styles."
Piñata Party

"This is a great Latin alternative bilingual album that combines rock, cumbia, and norteno (much like the great adult of version of this band, Pistolera).  Moona Luna does bilingual music the right way by singing entire verses in one language.  My kids' favorites are Quieres Bailar? and Brinca, Jump.  My kids love to see this band perform live."

"This was a great hidden gem!  My kids love most of the songs, and I find the music and percussion very interesting and entertaining."
El doble de amigos / Twice as Many Friends

"There are some great songs on this album.  Generally, this is a good mix of bilingual music and limited Spanglish.  This band combines many different styles and instruments, which makes it that much more interesting for both kids and adults."

"While most "teach your kids Spanish" albums fall short (e.g., most other Sarah Jordan albums), my kids and I actually liked many of the songs on this album.  The songs sound catchy, fairly modern, and have a nice arrangement and variety.  While I generally don't promote transitioning from one language to the other in the same verse, this one is done fairly well."

"I usually find children's music sung by children to be extremely annoying, but they actually hired kids with good voices to sing these songs!  My kids don't enjoy this album as much as the others ahead of it on this list, but the songs I purchased were still worth buying."

"This is actually one of the better albums with "classic" children's songs.  Unfortunately, the renditions of many of these songs are better on other Spanish language kids albums (e.g., Jorge AnayaÂ’s A Bailar and Cha Cha Cha).  This album consists of a variety of newly recorded traditional Latin music.  For a more modern take, first try the other albums on this list."
De Colores - Vol. 9
De Colores - Vol. 9
"A whole album of mellow stripped down acoustic guitar generally doesn't resonate well with me or my kids. Orozco does have a nice voice and annunciates his words clearly.  Generally, you're not going to find original songs or life lessons from his songs.  De Colores tends to be his most popular album, so if you like this one check out his other albums."
Aventura Collage

"A great deal of variety in musical styles but it doesn't hold my kids attention like most of the other albums on this list.  Iranzi uses many different styles such as reggae, rock, blues, tango, and samba."
