Los Lobos
has sold millions of records, won prestigious awards and made fans around the world. They are current nominees for a 2022 Grammy Award for Best Americana Album for their latest album, Native Son.  But perhaps Los Lobos' most lasting impact will be how well its music embodies the idea of America as a cultural melting pot. In it, styles like son jarocho, norteño, Tejano, folk, country, doo-wop, soul, R&B, rock ’n’ roll and punk all come together to create a new sound that’s greater than the sum of its parts.
The journey of Los Lobos began in 1973, when David Hidalgo (vocals, guitar, and pretty much anything with strings), Louie Perez (drums, vocals, guitar), Cesar Rosas (vocals, guitar), and Conrad Lozano (bass, vocals, guitarrón) joined up in L.A. performing at gigs in restaurants and parties. The band evolved in the 1980s and in 1984, saxophonist Steve Berlin joined the group. Early on, Los Lobos enjoyed critical success, winning the Grammy® for Best Mexican-American Performance for Anselma from its 1983 EP …And a Time to Dance. A year later, the group released its full-length, major-label debut, How Will the Wolf Survive? co-produced by Berlin and T Bone Burnett. The album was a college rock sensation that helped Los Lobos tie with Bruce Springsteen as Rolling Stone’s Artist of the Year.
Through the years, they’ve released countless albums and managed to keep things interesting with unexpected side trips like an album of Disney songs in 2009, along with countless contributions to tribute albums and film soundtracks. Along the way, they have continued to evolve artistically, entertaining audiences worldwide and earning several Grammy awards.
