LOS NAHUATLATOS – SATURDAY, 9/15/18 @ 3:00PM
Los Nahuatlatos (nä wät lâ tōs) But what does it mean?
The name, Los Nahuatlatos, derives from the body of language spoken by the various tribes of the Aztecas. It loosely means “the translators”. They 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.
Los Nahuatlatos are “an authentic voice that epitomizes a shift in la onda (the scene).” – Hector Saldaña, Express News
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.
This is the voice of a generation eagerly pushing the boundaries.
Los Nahuatlatos have been featured at the 2013 International Accordion Festival, the 32nd Annual Tejano/Conjunto Festival, and have opened for the Grammy Award winning bands Los Texmaniacs and La Santa Cecilia. Their debut album, “Tierra Sin Fin”, was released in the Spring of 2017 with their second album, “Jamás Inquieto”, set to be released this Fall.
