Visiting artists from San Antonio, Texas, Los Nahuatlatos are a group of musicians with deep roots to their Xicano-Indigenous heritage whose mission is to create original, inspiring and innovative music on a conscious level that people of all ages and backgrounds can enjoy.
Self-described as “Xicano Roots Fusion,” their music is a synthesis of traditional Latino styles. From Conjunto to Reggae, Chicano Soul to Cumbia and Ska, Los Nahuatlatos don’t so much straddle the line as find the groove in between worlds.
