123 Andrés is back with Arriba Abajo (“Up Down”), the much awaited follow-up to his Latin Grammy-nominated debut album. Andrés’ masterful songwriting is accompanied again by upbeat rhythms and catchy melodies that take listeners, young and old, around the Americas.
The warmth and authenticity of 123 Andrés’ delivery, makes Arriba Abajo a joy to sing and dance to. Samba, Cumbia, Joropo, Cha cha cha, and folk sounds are present in 21 original songs filled with themes of discovery and imagination for early learners. The songs, in English and Spanish, explore a world of objects that go “Arriba y Abajo,” up and down, like the musical scale, ten little birds, and a seed that sprouts when we plant it in the ground.
