Los Nahuatlatos

Formed of the sacred tierra on both sides of the South Texas/Mexico border, Los Nahuatlatos are composed of musicians with traditional, yet modern sensibilities. While some band members are trained in classical folkloric music and dance, others are self-taught and immersed in contemporary expressionism. As individuals with distinct musical backgrounds, they’ve come together to create a sound reflective of frontier; music that reflects both the conflict and harmony of the ni de aqua;, nì de alla experience. Thriving on the contradictions of the borderlands, los Nahuatlatos are at once rural and urban, rascuache and urbane.
