Presented by The New Victory Theater
N.Y. Premiere, March 15 - 16, 2019
¡Hola! It’s fiesta time and everyone’s invited! Sunny songstress Sonia De Los Santos is hosting a party on the New Victory stage, and her musical friends are arriving from all over Latin America to join in the fun. Everyone’s brought an instrument from their homeland and is ready to sing, dance and celebrate each other’s heritage and culture. Playing songs from her albums Alegría and Mi Viaje: De Nuevo León to the New York Island, Sonia “will show how the songs of her native Mexico have enriched her life in the United States, and vice versa” (The New York Times). ¡Los esperamos! We hope to see you at Fiesta con Sonia De Los Santos at The New Victory Theater for an exciting weekend of music and storytelling from March 15 - 16, 2019.
In Fiesta con Sonia De Los Santos, the music and musicians will represent several Latin American countries, including Mexico, Colombia, Argentina, Venezuela and the Caribbean, with messages of joyful and communal music-making across cultures. Most songs will be sung in Spanish, with intermittent dialogue between songs spoken in English.
Sonia De Los Santos was born and raised in Monterrey, Mexico, and in 2007 she started touring the world singing in English and Spanish, playing guitar and jarana and lighting up the stage with Grammy Award-winning group Dan Zanes And Friends (New Vic, 2008). Now with her own multicultural band, she has created a unique concert experience filled with original songs and Latin American party tunes for a personal, yet universal, musical story from a soulful and important new voice in family music.
