As I was studying to become a bilingual teacher in 1974, I was a student teacher in several bilingual classrooms in New Mexico. The teachers wanted me to translate English children's songs into Spanish and tried, but something was missing - the cultural connection. I decided to start looking for traditional Spanish songs and games from my friends and neighbors. When we moved to California in 1976, I continued my collection. In the process I gathered over 100 songs and games.

I did some research and found that publications of Spanish children's music indicated the songs and games were a part of our oral, cultural heritage and many appear to be hundreds of years old.

I started collecting albums/cassettes and was only able to locate a few for purchase. Eventually I decided to start recording the Spanish songs and games in an effort to preserve our musical cultural heritage. Please teach these songs and games to the children in your lives.
