The Center for the Arts, University at Buffalo, will present "Fiesta Mexico-Americana: Los Lobos with Ballet Folklorico Mexicano de Carlos Moreno" at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 3, in the Mainstage Theatre, located at the Center for the Arts, North Campus.
Los Lobos, the Grammy-winning East L.A. legends and 2016 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominees comprised of David Hidalgo, Louie Perez, Cesar Rosas, Conrad Lozano and Steve Berlin, are going back to their roots with a series of special performances with the iconic dance troupe Ballet Folklorico Mexicano de Carlos Moreno.
Los Lobos will integrate live performances of both traditional Mexican folk songs and selections from their repertoire - "La Pistola y El Corazon," in particular - with the vibrant performers of the BFM. They'll seamlessly share the stage, presenting popular traditional folk pieces from the regions of Guerrero, Veracruz, Tamaulipas and Chihuahua.
Each ensemble will also individually perform its own artistic creations, which have evolved from a Mexican-American experience. Both groups will demonstrate their dedication and commitment to exploring and honoring Mexican folklore.
The Grammy Award-winning Los Lobos are embarking on this ambitious series of dates hot on the heels of the release of their all-new full-length studio album, "Gates of Gold," which was released by 429 Records to rave reviews.
Tickets for "Fiesta Mexico-Americana: Los Lobos with Ballet Folklorico Mexicano de Carlos Moreno" are $47, $37 (students from any school) and $27. They are available at the center box office (10 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays) and via tickets.com. To charge tickets, call 1-888-223-6000. Groups call 716-645-6771.
