Louie Perez of Los Lobos describes the band and their new album ‘Gates of Gold’ this way. “We’re a Mexican American band, and no word describes America like ‘immigrant.’ Most of us are children of immigrants, so it’s perhaps natural that the songs we create celebrate America in this way.”
Perez, once called their powerhouse mix of rock, Tex-Mex, country, folk, R&B, blues and traditional Spanish and Mexican music “the soundtrack of the barrio.” Three decades, two more Grammys, the global success of “La Bamba” and thousands of rollicking performances across the globe later, Los Lobos is surviving quite well — and still jamming with the same raw intensity as they had when they began in that garage in 1973. They don’t get in the studio as often as they did a few decades ago – ‘Tin Can Trust’ came four years after their previous album of all originals, ‘The Town and the City’ – but when they do, the results are every bit as culturally rich, musically rocking and lyrically provocative as they were back in the day.
