ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Criss Cross Mangosauce combines traditional Latin rhythms with classic American children rhymes. This CD also introduces a beautiful sing-along story.

Children (and adults) will enjoy the vibrant sound of exotic congas, a traditional Venezuelan cuatro and castanets (among other instruments). At the sound of “Doy Vueltas/I am Turning”, children will move, jump and dance all around. With “Cinco Monitos/ Five Little Monkeys”, children will dance salsa and play the popular monkey rhyme. And be ready to be surprised with the new Caribbean “Hokey Pokey” !

Our story: From Apples to Mangos

Once upon a time there were three bilingual parents…

Irania Macías Patterson and Ana Lucia Divins met in 2004. After several conversations over Colombian coffee in a local Charlotte coffee shop, they decided to combine their passions and talents to create a very exciting project called: “Criss Cross Mangosauce”. Fred Figueroa was one of the first friends that Ana Lucia met when she moved to the United States, they were members of a Latin rock band in Charlotte and they sang together for about a year. Nobody else could have been the “music guru” of this adventure but Fred Figueroa... And along came "Criss Cross Mangosauce".

Their first CD was launched in 2007. Since then, they have introduced their music to hundreds of educators, children and families of North Carolina.

In 2008, these artists received funds of the Arts and Science Council (ASC) from their Latino Initiative to implement the initiative: “Criss Cross Mangosauce: Bridging Cultures through Bilingual Music” with the objective of introducing the bilingual and bicultural music of this CD as a unique educational tool for teachers, children and their families.

Today, these passionate artists continue using their talents to connect cultures with their high quality music. And they know, this is just the beginning of the story...

CRISS CROSS MANGOSAUCE
ESTOY MUY FELIZ DE SABER QUE NUESTRA CULTURA SE SIGUE DIFUNDIENDO EN LA COMUNIDAD AMERICANA Y ES MUY GRATIFICANTE SABER QUE ES ACOGIDA CON EXITO. ESTE CD NOS DA UNA DEMOSTRACION DE QUE LA MUSICA ES LA MEJOR FUENTE DE ENSEÑANZA Y APRENDIZAJE DE OTRO IDIOMA, ESPECIALMENTE AL PUBLICO AL QUE VA DIRIGIDO, NUESTROS NIÑOS!!! PERO PARA EN VERDAD ESTOY CASI SEGURA QUE A LOS ADULTOS LES GUSTA MUCHO TAMBIEN.
FELICIDADES UNA VEZ MAS A ESTE TALENTOSO GRUPO.

AMAZING CD
I purchased this CD after seeing a live performance. My children and I were captivated by the music. This has been a great learning tool and one of the most effective ways to expose my children to a second language. Two BIG thumbs up for Criss Cross Mangosauce!!! Our two favorite tracks are Cinco Monitos (learning to count in Spanish) and El Camaleon (learning colors in Spanish).

Criss Cross Mangosauce, herramienta clave para el aprendizaje de preescolares
En las clases que imparto con ninos preescolares y sus padres, tocamos los cantos de Saludos, 5 Monitos y Criss Cross mangosauce. Hay tiempo que los ninos y sus papas pueden moverse bailando con la musica durante la cancion y la letra no es dificil de aprender. Le recomiendo que todos los salones preescolares y todas las familias con ninos pequenos compren el CD. Yo he regalado el CD para Baby Showers y cuando nazca un bebe. En tiempos de cuenta cuentos en la biblioteca, en el salon de clase, en el carro o en la casa, el CD de Criss Cross Mangosauce es util y divertido de incluir en nuestra ensenanza.
