    A MUST FOR LOS LOBOS FANS

    If you have ever seen Los Lobos live in concert, than you know of their fondness for, and aptitude at playing traditional Mexican music. Here is an album that highlights that particular area of their immense talent, and also highlights other important artists of the genre. I don't speak spanish, but after listening to these songs a few times through, I've found myself singing along!

    A favorite!

    This collaboration is truly heaven inspired! I was not familiar with many of these artists and then I stumbled on a broadcast of Austin City Limits that featured Los Super Seven and I've been hooked ever since. Ruben Ramos' vocals are particularly wonderful. Enjoy!
