In band(s) : LOS LOBOS
Cesar Rosas came from the arid Sonora plains of Mexico to the heights of international renown by following the strings that link music to his heart. In 1973 he co-founded Los Lobos, the seminal group from East L.A. that integrates Mexican folk tradition with experimentation in a potpourri of folk and rock. Rosas’s disenchantment with the altered state of pop music in the early 1970s led him to dig into the music of his roots for creative sustenance. Common backgrounds and interests would bring the ‘wolves of East L.A.’ together.
Equally at ease with the electric guitar as with various traditional instruments of Mexican conjuntos, Rosas has evolved in different scenes, from Southern California rock to the Tex-Mex music revival and other forms of roots-oriented music. Together with his four friends Dave Hidalgo, Louie Pérez, Conrad Lozano, and Steve Berlin, he has co-steered Los Lobos for three decades, a group of musicians who have held the status of heroes to generations of people young and old, whether they live in East L.A. or not.
