This is the story of a band of dogs and cats (gatitos y perritos) from the streets of New York that go on to become the best salsa band in the land. Baby Loves Salsa brings salsa to all kids and adults regardless of whether they speak English or Spanish or whether they dance on 1 or 2 or dance at all, everyone will move, everyone will sway, all will have loads of fun....... This project was conceived with the goal of helping young kids (2-6 years) learn all about salsa and all about Spanish in a way that parents and kids children can enjoy together.
Baby Loves Salsa is performed by the Jose Conde band. The tunes are bilingual tunes - including "Somos la Banda" (We are the Band), "Bailar Rapido" (Dance Fast) and "Mi Familia es la Musica" (Music is My Family) among other originals. More than just Salsa for kids, singer-songwriter Jose Conde takes his Cuban roots and grafts them onto a dizzying range of Afro-Latin styles to bring to life an imaginary band of cats and dogs that create the ultimate special musical sauce (salsa especial). Baby Loves Salsa is a dance and music celebration geared toward Spanish and English speakers alike.
