Los Cenzontles to bring Chicano-roots music to Weill Hall (w/video)
With twenty albums under their belt, Los Cenzontles are proving to be a musical force to be reckoned with.
The band, which hails out of San Pablo, is taking the soulful roots of Mexican music and breathing into it a contemporary sound. Over the ten years the group has been performing together, they have collaborated with artists that include The Cheiftains, Linda Ronstadt, Los Lobos, Taj Mahal, and others. Their performances have spanned the globe, including Europe, the Dominican Republic, and all across Mexico and the U.S.
The critically acclaimed group will perform live at 7 p.m. on Thursday at Weill Hall. Teaming up with the Department of Chicano and Latino Studies at Sonoma State University, the performance is sponsored by a Green Music Center Academic Integration Grant meant for bringing diverse performers to the campus center.
Admission to attend the performance with Los Cenzontles is $10.
