On the eve of snagging a Grammy for best Latin rock, urban or alternative album, the Eastside-based band, Quetzal, performed for a packed house at the Breed Street Shul in Boyle Heights.
The pre-Grammy concert was organized to celebrate nominated artists influenced by fandango jarocho, a regional folk musical style from Veracruz, Mexico. Quetzal’s album “Imaginaries” blends son jarocho with blues, funk, rock, African and Latin rhythms.
Los Cojolites, who were also nominated in the same category, Raul Pacheco from Ozomatli and La Marisoul from La Santa Cecilia also performed at the event.
