Sustaining our Mission – Fundraiser with Los Lobos

Los Cenzontles hosted a fundraiser-birthday event, celebrating Executive Director Eugene Rodriguez’s 60th birthday with great music and community care. Los Cenzontles started the event with traditional son Jarocho, and were followed by the legendary Chicano rock band, Los Lobos. Taj Mahal, Pete Sears, La Marisoul and Los Cenzontles joined Los Lobos throughout the show, demonstrating the artistic hub of our academy. This moment exemplified the pivotal roles of our collaborating artists, families, donors, programming staff, and overall, familia, in sustaining our mission to preserve and amplify our roots, create robust youth arts education programs, and engage our communities through media production and art-making.
