Kindie Quick Hits: Wednesday Is Video Day!

A batch of new kindie videos went live this week.

The belle of the kindie ball, Laurie Berkner, has released a dance remix of one of her classic tunes, "We Are The Dinosaurs." New kids (i.e., real young ones) will be enthralled. Older kids (i.e., pretty much everyone in the world) will appreciate something from their childhood already being repurposed.

I wrote last summer about how gripped and affected I became after listening to Renee & Friends' song "You Were Meant To Be." Now they have released an animated video for the song, performed with Glen Phillips (of Toad the Wet Sprocket).

The Okee Dokee Brothers have released the video for "Somos Amigos" from their upcoming CD, SADDLE UP. Filmed on a bridge over the Rio Grande, the tune featuring an authentic mariachi band from Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Bilingual children's recording artist Andrés Salguero (aka 123 Andrés) is returning with his second CD,  ARRIBA ABAJO and is debuting the first video, "Dame Una A." You can see Andrés in Brooklyn next month, playing with Sonia De Los Santos at Jalopy in Red Hook on Sunday, June 19 or Friday, June 17 at the Lark Cafe with Lloyd Miller.

Speaking of Sonia, here is HER latest video from her CD, MI VIAJE: DE NUEVO LEON TO THE NEW YORK ISLAND, for the song "Chocolate":
