A Celebration of Mexican American Heritage
With Special Guests
Ballet Folklorico Mexicano

Presented in partnership with The Department of Mexican American and Latina/o Studies, the center for Mexican American Studies, and KUTX’s Horizontes

For this once-in-a-lifetime live performance, Los Lobos and Ballet Folklorico Mexicano celebrate Mexican-American heritage through imagery, dance, and music. This evening-long program highlights the many notable achievements of successful Mexican-Americans throughout time in a spectacular display!

More than three decades have passed since Los Lobos released their debut album, Just Another Band from East L.A. Since then, this multiple Grammy Award-winning band from east Los Angeles, California have 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.

Founded in 1967, Ballet Folklorico Mexicano draws on the artistic variety and large repertoire of indigenous dances from Mexico’s different regions. Many of these are presented in their traditional form while others have been restaged to include artistic elements from more contemporary choreography.

“[Los Lobos] are pioneering border fusionists, multiple Grammy winners and one of the two indisputably most influential Chicano musical acts in history, along with Ritchie Valens.” — Los Angeles Times
