Villalobos Brothers, Somos Review
Redefining contemporary Mexican music is The Villalobos Brothers. The three brothers, Luis Villalobos (violin, vocals, compositions) Alberto Villalobos (violin, vocals, compositions), and Ernesto Villalobos (violin, vocals, compositions), are creating original compositions that blend elements of jazz, rock and classical with Mexican folk music. The music is combined with lyrics that deliver a powerful message of love, brotherhood and social justice. The group’s virtuosic performances have enchanted listeners from Latin America, India and Russia to Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall and the Latin Grammy Awards. Their work has been recognized by numerous awards including the Vox Populi Award by the Independent Music Awards and the Ultimate Winners in WNYC’s 2013 Battle of the Boroughs. The Villalobos Brothers have collaborated with legendary musicians including Grammy winners Arturo O’Farrill, Antonio Sánchez, Eduardo Magallanes, Dan Zanes, and many others. The Villa Lobos Brothers are now teaming up with Humberto Flores (guitar, artistic director), Rosa Ávila (drums) and Leo Sherman (bass) to present a thirteen-track album titled, Somos.
