Andrés and Christina are the GRAMMY and Latin-Grammy award-winning music duo 123 Andrés. Their catchy songs and lively performances get the whole audience dancing, singing, and learning! Their high-energy, joyful shows celebrate the Latinx experience and incorporate Spanish and English.

Andrés and Christina — a husband-wife team — perform for tens of thousands of children and families each year. Their educational youth shows introduce a variety of musical instruments and styles from Central and South America, along with geography, social studies, and Spanish and ASL languages. They also have created three bilingual books, published by Scholastic, based on their songs, including Hello, Friend (Hola, Amigo) and Ten Little Birds (Diez Pajaritos). These books connect the performances to reading and writing for the younger elementary ages.

123 Andrés has released eight studio albums and has been featured by The New York Times, NPR, the Washington Post, and others. Their YouTube channel has over 50 million views and 100k+ subscribers, with their songs and videos used in early childhood and elementary classrooms across the US and Latin America. Their most recent album, "We Grow Together Preschool Songs," is GRAMMY WINNER for Best Children's Music album in 2024. They launched a new Podcast with PBS KIDS, "Jamming on the Job," in fall 2023.
