The Villalobos Brothers (Ernesto, Alberto, and Luis) use their violins and voices to redefine contemporary Mexican music. Their original compositions masterfully blend elements of jazz, rock, classical, and Mexican folk to deliver a powerful message of love, brotherhood, and social justice. Artistic Director and guitarist Humberto Flores, drummer Rose Avila, and bassist Leo Sherman complete the lineup. The group’s virtuoso performances have delighted listeners from Latin America, India, and Russia to Lincoln Center’s American Songbook, Carnegie Hall, and the Latin Grammy Awards. They have won numerous awards, including the Vox Populi Award by the Independent Music Awards and the Ultimate Winners in WNYC’s 2013 Battle of the Burroughs. The Villalobos Brothers have collaborated with legendary musicians including Grammy winners Arturo O’Farrill, Antonio Sanchez, Eduardo Magallanes, Dan Zanes, and many others.
