BACKGROUND:  Frida Kahlo High School’s music program develops young musicians as an incentive to student performance through their interest in music.  Beginning with the basic guitar class, Andean flute class and the jarana class, the students can advance and chose to join the performing group known as “Serenata de Frida”.  The group has performed at several groundbreaking ceremonies for the Los Angeles Unified School District and private events throughout Los Angeles.   

Los Lobos are three-time Grammy Award winners. Their music is influenced by rock and roll, Tex-Mex, country music, folk, R&B, blues and traditional Spanish and Mexican music such as boleros and norteños. Mexican-American roots-rock group Los Lobos has been performing and releasing albums since the late 1970s.
