Patas en al Aire (Paws in the Air)

Latin Grammy Award–winner Ben Gundersheimer contributed this song from his CD, Mundo Verde/Green World, a collection of original, bilingual songs with an environmental theme. “Nature has always been a major source of inspiration for me as a songwriter, and I'm fortunate to live on a dead-end road in the woods of Western Massachusetts. From the window of my recording studio, I can see black bears, coyotes, foxes, and my dog Josie who keeps a close eye on all the animals of the forest. For the song ‘Patas en el Aire,’ I imagined a scenario where all the animals of the forest came together thanks to the universal power of music. The song has quickly become a favorite at our live concerts as it’s a bit of bilingual ‘Simon Says.’ The kids love acting out the verses.”
