Fiesta Mexico Americana!

When: Fri., Feb. 12, 7:30 p.m. 2016

In a musical landscape littered with “genreless” artists, Los Lobos stand out as fusionist pioneers with an undying love of experimentation. Rising out of ’70s-era East LA with a repertoire that blurred blues, roots and Mexican folkloric sounds, the group scored a Grammy before their major label debut (1984’s How Will the Wolf Survive?) and reached the masses in 1987 with a chart-topping cover of Ritchie Valens’ classic “La Bamba.” Touted by critics for their surreal 1992 album Kiko, the six-piece return to the Alamo City as part of a creative collaboration with Ballet Folklórico Mexicano.
