Straight out of East L.A., Quetzal forges a sound as rich and complex as their pluri-ethnic barrio experience. The group is part of a transnational dialogue between musicians in California and Veracruz, Mexico known as Fandango Sin Fronteras, giving rise to numerous recordings, performances, and publications. Their album, Imaginaries (Smithsonian Folkways), received the 2013 Grammy for Best Latin Rock, Urban, or Alternative Album. Standing on the shoulders of giants like Lalo Guerrero, Ritchie Valens, Cannibal and The Headhunters, and Los Lobos, Quetzal has created a path that has earned them accolades from audiences and critics alike.
