Songs of Wood & Steel


Recorded with candor, humor and fits of inspiration, Songs of Wood & Steel is a Mexican American family album featuring musicians of different generations, languages and musical backgrounds.



Los Cenzontles with David Hidalgo

The album includes popular songs, original tunes, little-known Mexican traditions and spur-of-the-moment jams. The breadth of Mexican American music is deep and wide and expresses the poetry and chaos of our culture.

“The group has created an album that seamlessly incorporates rock and blues elements into traditional Mexican forms, smacking of neither academia nor compromise. The album revives the improvisation and anarchy of authentic Mexican music, presenting it traditionally at one moment then fusing it with rock and blues at another, reflecting the chaos and energy of contemporary Mexican American culture.”– Vintage Guitar Magazine
