Los Lobos has entertained fans for more than 40 years with an innovative mix of sounds including Mexican folk music, rock and roll, blues, soul and country. A hit 1984 album, How Will the Wolf Survive?, was followed in 1987 with the band’s chart-topping remake of Ritchie Valens’ classic “La Bamba.” A subsequent album, La Pistola y El Corazón, revisited the band’s Mexican folk roots. The breakthrough 1992 release, Kiko, was an innovative blend of the group’s musical influences.
Los Lobos’ lineup has remained uninterrupted since 1984, when saxophonist/keyboardist Steve Berlin joined original members Louie Pérez, David Hidalgo, Cesar Rosas and Conrad Lozano, each of whom had been there since the band formed in 1973. The latest Los Lobos release is Disconnected in New York City.
