This CD is dedicated to my mother, Francisca Molinar Velásquez, and to the memory of my father, John E. Velásquez and my brother, John Robert Velásquez.
The Double Bubbleheads CD is a bilingual/bicultural collection of thirteen children’s songs written and performed by acclaimed author, Gloria L. Velásquez. The Double Bubbleheads songs illustrate a variety of themes to teach children about the rich cultural identity of Chicanos. Included are songs that emphasize the concept of familia in the Chicano/Latino community as well as the significance of historical figures such as César Chávez and Dolores Huerta. Many songs are playful and funny, teaching specific vocabulary in Spanish about parts of the body, colors, and animals. The Double Bubbleheads CD also has a companion songbook, which includes the lyrics for each of the thirteen songs.
