Hot Peas 'N Butter

Tell us about your music:

We make world music for families. We love to use instruments from around the globe and to sing in different languages. A lot of our songs are in Spanish and English and use Afro-Caribbean rhythms as well as other traditional rhythms.

About your song (e.g., any unique instruments used, the origins of the lyrics, what inspired you, etc.):

Magic Elevator is a song that comes from dreams of flying and transporting ourselves anywhere we want to be in a flash! Why take a boring old elevator that only goes up and down when you can be in one that goes every which way? And besides, as the song says, “YOU ARE THE NAVIGATOR!” so this elevator will follow your directions and you follow your dreams ;)

What you hope children & families will get from this song:

We hope anyone who listens to Magic Elevator will feel that there are no barriers, walls, or other obstacles that should stop you from following your dreams getting where you want to go. Be the Magic Elevator for yourself!
