What's the story?

The Grammy Award-winning Latin sextet Los Lobos adds their own personal Latin-flavored stamp to Disney favorites such as "Bare Necessities" and "Cruella De Vil" in LOS LOBOS GOES DISNEY. The thirteen tracks include songs from The Jungle Book, Toy Story,101 Dalmatians, and Robin Hood, just to mention a few, and will have both Disney and Los Lobos fans enjoying fresh renditions of songs they already know and love.

Is it any good?

Although the idea of a Disney album from Los Lobos ("La Bamba") may sound odd at first, it becomes quickly apparent that it actually works. While some of the tracks don't quite live up to the originals ("Oo-De-Lally" from Robin Hood drags in comparison, and "Bella Notte" from The Lady and the Tramp  falls a little flat), most of the songs deliver just the right touch of Latin-inspired flavor, bringing new life to old favorites. The under-appreciated "I Will Go Sailing No More" from Toy Story is sung sweetly and poignantly here, and both "I Wan'na Be Like You" and "Bare Necessities" from The Jungle Book  highlight the musical talents of this long-loved group.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about these versions of popular Disney songs. Which are your favorites, and why? Do you prefer the originals, or the spiced-up renditions?

  • Los Lobos is a band that has crossed ethnic musical boundaries again and again. Why is it important for kids to be exposed to different cultures and ethnicities when it comes to media and entertainment?
