We’re so excited to chat with husband and wife duo Lucky Diaz and Alisha Gaddis about their love of Los Angeles, blending their music and acting careers with parenting, raising their kids bilingually, and their new picture book. Paletero Man is a vibrant debut picture book celebrating the strength of community and inclusivity (on-sale June 1 from HarperCollins Children’s Books). This bilingual read-aloud book is based on Lucky’s Los Angeles diverse neighborhood and Latinx culture.
The Lucky Band (by Diaz and Gaddis) are among the top artists in family music. For more than a decade, their songs and performances have celebrated diversity and inclusion, blending cultures seamlessly through song. Among their many awards and nominations, they won an Emmy Award for their kids’ variety show, “Lishy Lou and Lucky Too,” and Latin GRAMMYs for two of their family music albums: ¡Fantastico! (2013) and ¡Buenos Diaz! (2019).
