Cuando era pequeña - Bilingual Album

Today I am excited to bring you a review for a fantastic artist, Nathalia. She just released her third bilingual album and I am thrilled to tell you all about CUANDO ERA PEQUEÑA (WHEN I WAS YOUR AGE). 
Nathalia was born and raised in Colombia. She moved to the United States to attend the Berklee College of Music and has a Clinical Psychology Masters from Antioch University. She began her career as a music therapist and elementary music teacher in Los Angeles. These experiences all helped her to develop her music as a tool to teach her children about Spanish and their Colombian heritage.
Nathalia's lyrics are full of relatable scenarios and captivating experiences. Listening to her music brought me back to my childhood as a 4 year old when I used to sit with my "abuelita" to drink coffee. You see, if I drank coffee I would also get cookies. Double win! Children can easily relate to It's My Birthday and Pesadillas because they are all experiences they have gone through. Personally, I've been replaying Señor Opuesto over and over and thinking of ideas on how to incorporate this in an antonym lesson with my kiddos!!!

Her newest bilingual album features rock tunes and even cumbia music. The upbeat songs written bilingually talk about everything from dinosaurs to hopes and dreams of what kids want to be when they grow up. There are a total of 10 tracks on her CD that will have you dancing and humming all day long.

1 Dinosaur Dance
2 Señor Opuesto
3 It's My Birthday
4 Pesadillas
5 Qué llueva
6 When I Grow Up
7 La Iguana Pepa
8 Oh Math
9 ¿Qué me dices tu?
10 Otra vez

All of the tracks are amazing just listen to her samples HERE and you'll be hooked on the style and beat!
