Lucky Diaz Dives into His Heritage with a New Album of Original Bilingual Songs

This bilingual album is packed full of fun, as Lucky Diaz celebrates the upcoming generation of kids, and reflects the challenging experiences of young families during the past year. He also explores his Latinx heritage in songs like ‘Dedos’ and ‘Sabado’.

Crayon Kids represents new directions for Lucky Diaz and his band. He explains,

“When we started the Family Jam Band, we wanted to continually evolve. The project has always been about being fun and original. It then turned into a cultural journey for me as a Mexican-American, creating songs that are rooted in my pocho and Latinx identity.”

Interview with L.A. Parent Magazine

What it’s like to be a family music artist who crosses cultures and languages while reflecting kids’ lives today?

Diaz and Gaddis are planning concerts to promote the new book and album this summer. For the latest updates, connect with them on Instagram and Facebook.
