Can Anyone Help with Any Songs from Honduras, Guatemala and/or Belize?

I received these two notes below on the Mama Lisa’s World Facebook Group and was wondering if anyone could help?

“Love all of the resources on mama lisa’s world regarding songs of countries around the world. I needed songs from various Central and South American countries and found many to use at school with the only ones that I still needed were Honduras, Guatemala and Belize.”

Here’s another one…

2) Laura Gurdo wrote…

Hi, I need traditional songs or rhymes from Argentina for a preeschool project. I have read Giddy up, Little bull and Little Kolla Boy….
Thanks . Laura

If anyone can help Juanita or Laura with songs from any of these countries, please let us know in the comments below. Even if the songs are only in the original languages, that would still be great!

Thanks in advance.

    There are some more childrens songs from Argentina here – in Spanish only.

  2. Monique Says:

    Maybe you could buy the Umalali cd. You can find it on Amazon and you can also hear and see some of it on YouTube

    Check out Guillermo Andersen/Anderson. He is a musician from La Ceiba, Honduras and has many children songs as well as songs about the north coast of Honduras and his country’s culture.

    Honduras and Belize are home to Garifuna culture on the coasts, and Garifuna music could be used.

    I;m not sure about Guatemala. Isn’t Arjona oringinally from there?

    Look up “Vamos a la mar a comer pescado song from Guatemala” – it is a song that has “tum tum” or “tun tun” in it. It is included in a lot of “folk song” collections.

    We are a mixed Honduran family. Here is a link with folksongs traditional in Honduras. My kids’ favorites have been El Pitero and A la Capotin.
