Biography

Los Lobos were formed in 1974 by David Hidalgo, Conrad Lozano, Louie Prez and Cesar Rosas — four friends from Garfield High School in east Los Angeles. Though they started out as a rock ‘n’ roll band, they soon chose a more traditional Mexican acoustic style. For years the quartet played wedding gigs as well as other traditional Mexican gatherings around east Los Angeles’ Chicano community. In 1978, Los Lobos landed its first steady professional gig, playing at a Mexican restaurant but got fired as they gradually evolved back into a loud rock ‘n’ roll band, complete with an accordion. In time, the band adopted music from Tex-Mex, country, folk, R&B and blues, as well as the traditional Mexican songs from their roots.

EXPAND FULL BIO

During this time, Los Lobos were signed to Slash Records. Los Lobos recorded another EP, an eclectic mix of roots rock ‘n’ roll and Mexican Nortea music. One of its songs, ‘Anselma,’ won a Grammy for best Mexican/American performance.

After a year of heavy touring, the band released How Will the Wolf Survive? in 1984 and By the Light of the Moon (displaying distinct jazz, blues and country influences) in 1987. But their biggest commercial success to date was in 1987 when the band’s remake of Ritchie Valens’ ‘La Bamba,’ from a biopic of the same name, topped the pop charts.
Though future albums did not duplicate the commercial success of ‘La Bamba,’ the band won Grammys for a 1988 Spanish-language album and for their contribution to the film Desperado.
