They’ve recorded 17 studio albums, seven live LPs, three compilations, two EPs and two DVDs. They’ve made over 40 guest appearances on their friends’ recordings, while earning five Grammys, induction into the Austin City Limits Hall of Fame, the ALMA Richie Valens Pioneer Award, NEA and Hispanic Heritage Foundation Honors, Congressional recognitions and numerous “Keys to the City” and “Los Lobos Day” celebrations.
The band spreads cultural diversity worldwide and still has its original founding members. Their liner notes simply say, “Los Lobos still are David Hidalgo, Louie Pérez, Jr., Cesar Rosas, Conrad Lozano, Steve Berlin.”
