Do Los Lobos ever tour Mexico?
« on: February 23, 2020, 04:28:22 am »
I am going to be retiring from California, USA to Michoacan, Mexico, I was wondering if Los Lobos ever do tours thru Mexico?

I would necessarily say tour thru Mexico, but they have play there from time to time.

they are not well received by the people of Mexico at all

to their ears LL (along with anything that fuses their traditional music with music that is patently anglo or euro or afro like blues/rock/etc) is blasphemous to their culture

(i'm remembering this from a conversation i had w/ Cougar - he described festivals in Mexico where LL played to crowds of middle fingers)

Maybe the crowds were showing them they were No.1 in their hearts
