Los Nahuatlatos / Bio

Their name, derived from the word Nahuatl (language of the Aztec empire), loosely means The Translators and, like their musical identity, is based on the social/political movements of the Xicano struggle for justice and equality. Rooted in the musical traditions of South Texas, LOS NAHUATLATOS have been described as many things, but the core is Roots Music, or as they put it, “Xicano Roots Fusion.” Pulling from traditional styles of Latino music (including but not limited to- Conjunto, Son Jarocho, Latin Jazz and R&B) and fusing contemporary elements of hip-hop, ska, reggae and soul, LOS NAHUATLATOS continue to push the boundaries as a new generation of Latino musicians exploring an ambitious new sound. While members have changed over the years, they remain true to their mission of creating inspiring music on a conscious level that people of all ages and backgrounds can enjoy.
