Steve Sandberg is a three-time Emmy-nominated composer, performer and musical director. His scoring, songwriting and musical direction for “Dora the Explorer”, “Go, Diego, Go!” and “Dora and Friends: Into the City!” helped make these shows the landmarks they are in children’s television worldwide. Steve has toured with David Byrne and Bebel Gilberto as keyboardist, arranger and vocalist, conducted and arranged music for Broadway, and composed and musical directed for the New York Shakespeare Festival. He is currently producing and writing the music for Literary Safari’s developmental reading apps for children, and for “Magic on My Fingertips,” an innovative series of animated videos teaching young children how to soothe and uplift their emotions through music and movement. His current quartet, “Alaya”, includes Zach Brock (Snarky Puppy), Mauricio Zottarelli (Eliane Elias) and Michael O’Brien and is performing “music from a country I’ve never been to but always wanted to visit.” See more about the quartet at STEVE SANDBERG & ALAYA
