For two more weeks we are offering our readers the chance to win a family pack (up to four) of tickets to attend Strathmore’s Backyard Theater. Last week a mom and her three sons won our tickets to see the Seattle-bred rock band Recess Monkey, and this week we hope your family will have the opportunity to see the bilingual melodic stylings of Moona Luna from my beloved “heart’s home” of Brooklyn, New York!
More about the band: “Moona Luna’s bilingual songs spread messages of joy and discovery accompanied by accordion-driven melodies. A passion project of Mexican-American songwriter Sandra Velasquez and her band Pistolera, Moona Luna’s debut album Piñata (2011) won a Parent’s Choice Award as well as CD of the Year Award for a foreign language album from Creative Child Magazine.”
Watch their video of “Todas Las Comidas (All the Food)”! I know some picky eaters who could use the song’s message! “Que rico!”
