Los Cenzontles (Nahuatl for “The Mockingbirds”) dig deep into cultural traditions, creating a vibrant, contemporary sound infused with the gutsy soul of Mexico’s rural roots. Los Cenzontles (senn-SONT-less) have produced 19 albums with their 20th, Regeneration, released with critical acclaim this past fall. The band has performed across the U.S., in Europe, the Dominican Republic, and throughout Mexico. They have collaborated with many artists including The Chieftains, Los Lobos, Los Tigres del Norte, Linda Ronstadt, Ry Cooder, David Hidalgo and Taj Mahal, among others. Los Cenzontles "both honor and upend traditional Mexican music, tapping deep roots as it flowers into something completely new, and distinctly American." -NewYorkTimes "Los Cenzontles’ gutsy rhythms and delightful voices reinvigorated my love of Mexican music." -LindaRonstadt “Meeting Los Cenzontles was just like meeting a medieval clan of wonderful musicians from the West Coast of Ireland. The fusion of their music with ours was something that just had to happen. It was inevitable.” -Paddy Moloney, The Chieftains For more reviews and pressmaterials, visit: www.loscenzontles.com/band.
