Boom Shaka Boom Boom – A Spanish Song for Kids

Sara Quintanar, is an Elementary School Music Educator, bilingual songwriter, and performance artist.  Frustrated by the lack of early childhood music classes in Spanish, she established Music With Sara. She sings Spanish and English songs to help teach the love of Spanish to children.

Sara shared with us her song called Boom Shaka Boom Boom. This song has a lively beat and teaches kids parts of the body in Spanish. They can dance to it too!

You can watch the video below and read along with the Spanish lyrics and English translation/version…

Spanish Lyrics:

conga_pdToco las congas con mis manos.

Piso con mis pies.

Toco el piano con mis dedos.

Camino al revés.

Bum shaka bum bum,

Bum shaka bum.

Bum shaka bum shaka bum bum.

Muevo mis hombros.

¡Canto fuerte con mi voz!

Escucho con mis oídos,

Escucho los sonidos.

English Translation/Version:

I play the congas with my hands.

I step with my feet.

I play the piano with my fingers.

And walk backwards to the beat.

Boom shaka boom boom

Boom shaka boom.

Boom shaka boom shaka boom boom.

I move my shoulders.

I sing loud with my voice.

I listen with my ears

To all the lovely noise.
