Sonia De Los Santos, hailed by Billboard as “one of the Latin children’s music artists you should know,” makes her debut at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts this Sunday.
The sunny musician & singer performs La Golondrina: A Musical Journey, a family-friendly bilingual concert on Sunday, November 10, 2019, 2 pm, in The Wallis’ Bram Goldsmith Theater.
A native of Monterrey, Mexico, De Los Santos presents a program reflecting her experiences growing up in Mexico and moving to another country, learning about other cultures, and in the process, feeling closer to her own heritage.
Sonia De Los Santos’ most recent album, ¡Alegría!, was just nominated for a 2019 Latin Grammy in the Best Latin Children’s Album category.
The Wallis performance is recommended for children ages 4+.
Earlier that day, on The Wallis’ Promenade Terrace at 11 am, Parker Bent performs original music geared for children and families in the first of three free programs this season, and at noon, Debbie Allen & Friends welcomes dancers of all ages and abilities to a free Hip-Hop dance lesson as the fifth season of The Wallis’ popular Dance Sundays continues.
“Sonia is a bright light and important new voice in family music,” says The Wallis’ Artistic Director, Paul Crewes, “she entertained our younger audiences twice in the past as a special guest with Dan Zanes, and we are so happy to be able to present her again on our stage.”

About the Artist:
SONIA DE LOS SANTOS was born and raised 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). This unique collection of old and new songs is a personal, and yet universal, musical story, and the messages of joyful community music making and cultural bridge building inspire and excite children and grown-ups of all backgrounds. Her highly anticipated follow-up, ¡Alegría! has been nominated for Best Latin Children’s Album in the 2019 Latin Grammys. ¡Alegría! is a joy-filled album of songs about her family, migrating butterflies and birds, wildflowers and is dedicated to the children that have inspired her with their joy over the years. De Los Santos’ music has been featured on NBC’s “Visiones,” Sirius XM’s Kids Place Live and WXPN’s Kids Corner among others. She has also made numerous appearances as a singer and guitarist on TV shows like ABC’s “Good Morning America,” CBS’s “The Early Show,” and Sprout’s “The Sunny Side up Show” and has performed with her band in renowned venues and festivals such as Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, Symphony Space, The Getty Museum, Austin City Limits, Madison Square Park, Battery Park, Central Park Summer Stage Kids and many more. Recently, De Los Santos gave voice to the Spanish version of the acclaimed book/CD Sing To Your Baby (Cántale A Tu Bebé) created by Grammy Award Winners Cathy Fink and Marcy Marxer, and is touring with her band across the United States.
