Whether finishing up Saturday’s chores, making dinner as a family, or picking someone up from soccer practice, music adds an element of fun, creating a melodic background to activities. But, finding songs everyone enjoys can prove challenging. Either the kids’ songs sound sickly-sweet and sing-songy, or the adult lyrics leave a poor impression on little ones, setting moms up for unwanted questioning!
Nathalia Palis appreciates the struggle, so created ‘Cuando Era Pequena,’ an album that bridges the gap between adult music taste and children’s sonic interests. Cuando Era Pequena, which means ‘When I Was Your Age’ combines catchy rhythms with relatable lyrics while weaving in educational messages for both kids and adults.
Palis wrote bilingual songs, with parts of the song in English and other parts in Spanish, providing a great opportunity for learning a new language together in an easy, relaxing, and fun manner.
‘Cuando Era Pequena’ features music with depth, as Palis wistfully sings from the perspective of a child, touching upon everything from wanting to grow up to her disdain for math to her sadness when she thinks everyone forgets her birthday. Palis sings about real issues for an adolescent, incorporating various tones and rhythms to evoke the natural ups and downs of this stage of life.
“Cuando Era Pequena” will make you and your kids laugh, dance, think and feel. Buy yours at NathaliaMusic.com.
