Felipa, la princesa
Summary: Today's podcast is a reading of Felipa, la princesa, written by Patricia Archanco. It is read by the husband and wife team Fati Sfiligoi and Charles Mister who compose and perform fun, original songs in Spanish for children. Their company is called Abbasubi and they have a CD out called "El Baile del Sombrero," which you can find on Amazon.com, iTunes or CDBaby. Fati is from Argentina and Charles is from Brooklyn, NY. When they got married and started a family, it was very important to both of them that they raise bilingual children. Two years ago, during the summer of 2008, they started singing songs in Spanish on the weekends in a Brooklyn park. Their musical outings grew in popularity to the point where they decided to formalize their project by recording a CD and launching their company called Abbasubi. Most of the songs center on everyday life (going to school, getting dressed, taking a bath, etc.) and are a neat way to help young children maintain contact with the Spanish language.
