about

123 Andrés is back with Arriba Abajo (“Up Down”), the much awaited follow-up to his Latin Grammy-nominated debut album. Andrés’ masterful songwriting is accompanied again by upbeat rhythms and catchy melodies that take listeners, young and old, around the Americas.

The warmth and authenticity of 123 Andrés’ delivery, makes Arriba Abajo a joy to sing and dance to. Samba, Cumbia, Joropo, Cha cha cha, and folk sounds are present in 21 original songs filled with themes of discovery and imagination for early learners. The songs, in English and Spanish, explore a world of objects that go “Arriba y Abajo,” up and down, like the musical scale, ten little birds, and a seed that sprouts when we plant it in the ground.

The album is accompanied by online Learning Guides full of fun and interactive activities families and educators can use to build on the songs to extend the learning. Developed in conjunction with a master classroom teacher, the Learning Guide explores numbers, language acquisition, pre-reading, early science concepts, and more, with activities in both English and Spanish.

Y todo este bosque salió de una sola semilla
Eso es lo que puedes hacer
¡con una semilla!

This one's very big
And that one very small

This one has huge horns
That one’s horns are little
This one has a giant snout

A big one and a small one,
But I love them equally

Long, teeny
Huge, little
Giant, mini

Track Name: The Seed
Pick a fruit
Cut it in half, open it,
and inside you’ll find
a seed
We take that seed and we plant it in the ground

I take a seed plant it in the ground
With soil, water and sun
A big tree will grow
Reaching to the sky

From that tree, a fruit grows
and inside that fruit there’s another seed

I take that seed and plant it in the ground
With soil, water and sun
A big tree will grow
Reaching to the sky

And from that plant many fruits grow
and those fruits gives us lots of seeds
Let’s plant them

I take those seeds plant them in the ground
with soil, water and sun

A forest will grow
Reaching towards the sky

And from those trees many more fruits will grow and from them many, many seeds, and we plant them once again

I take those seeds, plant them in the ground
This whole forest came out of a single seed
That’s what you can do
with one seed!

Track Name: Colorín Colorado (feat. Radio Jarocho & Zenen Zeferino)
Ay Colorín Colorado
Aunque el disco se acabó
La música no ha acabado
Pues sigue en tu corazón

Pues la música es la luz
Que entre tu corazón brilla
Pues la música es semilla
Que germina hacia el sol

Cántalo de arriba a abajo
De la cabeza a los piés
Y cuando hayas terminado
Pues comienza otra vez

Ya con esta me despido
Se va 123 Andrés
Nos veremos otra vez
Hasta pronto mis amigos

Ay Colorín Colorado
Aunque el disco se acabó
La música no ha acabado
Pues sigue en tu corazón
