Sonia De Los Santos (Family Discovery – World Music/Folk)

April 2 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Sonia De Los Santos was born with a smile on her face (that’s what her mom
says) in Monterrey, Mexico. In 2007 she started touring the world, singing
in English and Spanish, playing guitar and jarana, and lighting up the
stage with the Grammy Award-winning group Dan Zanes and Friends.
De Los Santos was nominated for a 2019 Latin Grammy with her second
family-music album, ¡Alegría!, and has been hailed by Billboard as “one of
the Latin children’s music artists you should know” and Best Latin
Children’s Music. She has performed with her band in renowned venues and
festivals such as the Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, Lollapalooza, Austin
City Limits, Getty Museum, Smithsonian Folklife Festival and many more.
In 2020, De Los Santos launched En Casa con Sonia, an online musical series
recorded from her home, and in 2021, she debuted ¿Qué Pasa, Sonia?, a new
radio segment featuring some of her favorite songs at Sirius XM’s Kids
Place Live.
De Los Santos is getting ready to release her third album, Esperanza, a
bilingual collection of songs that explore hope; looking back at
individuals’ journeys, cherishing their cities and homes, being grateful
for one another, dreaming of a better future, marveling at nature and
finding the light within each person.
