Your Daily Lick: Los Cenzontles

Songs of Wood and Steel (Los Cenzontles Mexican Art Center)



Richmond's acclaimed Mexican-American roots band Los Cenzontles worked with David Hidalgo of Los Lobos on its second record, and the result is a rich blend of folk music and searing blues guitar. Occasional detours into improvisational jam-band fare exhibit the group's ability to deliver the expected and the unexpected with equal grace.
