Los Cojolites is a collective of soneros who currently work and live together in Jaltipan, Veracruz, Mexico. They were recently nominated for a Grammy for “Best Regional Mexican Music Album.” They started as young musicians in 1997 at a workshop studying their regional dance, a poetry and music known as Son Jarocho. They have been featured live at the first San Francisco Son Jarocho Festival and in the Hollywood film “Frida.” As adults they continue to inspire a younger generation of soneros. By keeping respect for tradition and by having the courage and creativity to innovate based on those traditions, Los Cojolites will continue to contribute quality music to the 400-year-old genre known as Son Jarocho.
