  • Quetzal

Inspired by traditional son jarocho music of Veracruz, Mexico, and spiked with urban rhythms, rock and R&B, East LA Chicano group Quetzal will release "Imaginaries", its 5th album and 1st for Smithsonian Folkways, on Feb. 28, 2012.

Quetzal, called "provocative, heartfelt and strikingly original" by the LA Times and founded by guitarist Quetzal Flores, rose from the ashes of uprisings in LA in 1992 as a vehicle for social commentary.

Quetzal is a GREAT group from East L.A. that I was just reminded of as they are the featured group at KPCC March 1. They have a new album coming out on Feb 28.
