Coloreando

NEWS & REVIEWS

Marta Gomez, a Latin Grammy winner, is making it her purpose to teach children Spanish through singing. Partnering with the Global Language Project, Gomez has been able to record Coloreando, which won a Latin Grammy itself, and Coloreando Dos which boost Spanish-language appreciation with traditional Latin-American songs.

“I consider myself a singer-songwriter,” she smiles. “All my songs are very political and poetic. And, I'm independent. With the first Coloreando, I got the invitation from Global Language Project to have a CD for kids. I always wanted to record albums for children…But when I got pregnant, I decided it was time to record an album for children because I wanted to see, to compose and to sing lullabies from around the world and music for children to listen, but also for the parents…I wanted to actually record CDs that you enjoy listening to as a child and as an adult.”

Coloreando by Marta Gomez & Friends is a superb collection of traditional Spanish songs sure to delight children of all ages (and native languages).

Expertly performed and filled with repetition and rhythm, Coloreando offers Spanish language students (formal or informal) a way to learn through song. Marta Gomez, a native speaker, gives exquisite voice to the lessons delivering clear and authentic pronunciation at a moderate pace. Each song has a theme which makes it much easier for listeners to pick up words and meaning. Marta's arrangements and musicianship are complemented by Juancho Herrera (guitar), Roberto Cachimuel (violin and charango), Marcelo Woloowski (percussion).

As a Spanish teacher, this CD adds tremendous value in the classroom, incorporating selected songs into my lessons. The CD includes a sweetly illustrated booklet with lyrics in Spanish and the translation in English. Using the lyrics, I am able to isolate selected vocabulary to greatly increase my student's comprehension of the song without using the English translation.

Coloreando, with its genuine warmth and enchanted production, has a place in every music library at home or at school.
