Latin superstar and three-time Grammy winner Los Lobos continues to top the charts with Latino music fused with everything from cumbia to rock and roll. In 1974, David Hidalgo, Conrad Lozano, Louie Perez and Cesar Rosas, four friends from Garfield High School in East Los Angeles, joined forces to play rock and roll. Over time, the band expanded its musical influences to include Tex-Mex, country, folk, rhythm and blues, and traditional Mexican songs. They have collaborated with a rich and varied roster of artists, including Dave Alvin, Dave Alvin, Ruben Blades, Elvis Costello, Little Willie G, Mavis Staples, Richard Thompson, Bobby Womack and Tom Waits. The band won Grammys for its 1988 Spanish-language album, and for its contribution to the film Desperado, as well as having released a children's album in 1995. Los Lobos will be a great way to celebrate Deiz y Seis.
