Criss Cross Mangosauce is a group of teaching artists promoting bi-lingual (English/Spanish) music, storytelling and literacy programs in the US.

Since we launched our first CD in 2007, our award-winning group has performed at hundreds of libraries, schools and cultural events, sharing the flavors of this “Mangosauce” with thousands of children, families and educators.

Since 2010, we have offered a family friendly answer to the growing need for bi-cultural educational programs, considering the fast growth of the Hispanic population in the US.
