Audiences are invited to take an around-the-world musical tour with Los Folkloristas when the group performs at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, April 30, in the Performing Arts Center’s Pealer Recital Hall at Frostburg State University.
Founded in 1966 to preserve and record the traditional music of Mexico and Latin America, Los Folkloristas’ seven members perform music from over a dozen countries—even pre-Columbian America—and together play more than 100 different instruments. They have recorded more than 30 albums worldwide and contributed to the soundtracks for the award-winning films “El Norte” and “My Family.” Los Folkloristas received the INDIE award in World Music from the National Association of Record Distributors (NAIRD) in 1992 and the group is considered to be one of the most popular musical ensembles in Latin America.
