Los Lobos

Los Lobos is one of most original, eclectic, and commercially successful Mexican American bands to blend Mexican R&B, Tex-Mex, and punk. After starting out as roots rockers, they spent eight years focusing on traditional Mexican instruments and evolving their sound. In 1987 they crossed over with a cover version of La Bamba for a Ritchie Valens biopic. But their true legacy is as one of the most popular Mexican American bands to effortlessly blend their myriad influences into a unique sound that appeals to a diverse audience across the U.S. and Europe.
