In this awaited sequel to The Jazz Fly, Matthew introduces Spanish words and Latin jazz. In fact, he introduces forty zippy Spanish phrases to thoroughly entertain children of all backgrounds. The first Spanish word is “pachanga” which is like a fiesta only with more music, more energy, and more dancing till all hours! Matthew’s MUST-HEAR mp4 features the same instrumentation as the first Jazz Fly, with the addition of master Latin percussionist John Santos. Follow the Jazz Bugs deep into the rainforest, decipher the spoken words of exotic fauna—but watch out for the dangers that lurk around the termite nest. Like the Fly, and the author himself, you’ll be glad you learned to speak a second language!

The Story Begins

A tropical tour.
The Fly drove his band, nicely dressed,
on their way to playin’ music in a termite nest.
But the limousine sputtered, the gas ran dry,
so the Fly popped the hood
and started clangin’ with a wrench…
