This nearly 8 hour 'Cinco De Mayo' festival of music, put together by 'Los Lobos' was a wonderful eclectic program of traditional and modern music from and in tribute to Mexico. We'll try to make it again next year.

Description

More than three decades have passed since Los Lobos released their debut album, Just Another Band from East L.A. Since then they’ve repeatedly disproven that title—Los Lobos isn’t “just another” anything, but rather a band that has consistently evolved artistically while never losing sight of their humble roots.

For Tin Can Trust—Los Lobos’ first release for Shout! Factory and first collection of new original material in four years—the venerable quintet reconnected directly with those roots by returning to East L.A. and recording at Manny’s Estudio, “in a rundown neighborhood,” says Los Lobos songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Louie Pérez. A rare example of longevity in a volatile music world that stresses style over substance, Los Lobos’ lineup has remained uninterrupted since 1984, when saxophonist/keyboardist Steve Berlin joined original members Pérez, Hidalgo, Rosas and Lozano, each of whom had been there since the beginning in 1973.

El Chicano exploded on to the music scene from the streets of East Los Angeles.  Over a 40 year span, the group has garnered 5 Gold records and was voted No. 1 Jazz group of 1970. With ten Albums recorded El Chicano is also featured on over 50 compilation works as well as having their music featured on many major motion picture soundtracks. The group is very much aware of their roots and giving back to the community, as such they have been recognized many times for their contributions to community and charities especially those that help children and promote the arts. Watch for the latest El Chicano CD release coming soon! Also, joining the Cinco de Mayo Festival this year is Grammy and Latin Grammy-nominated quintet, Kinky.
