Los Lobos, with their unique talent, was able to release a lot of awards. They were able to receive multiple Grammy Awards which include ‘Best Mexican/American Performance’ (Anselma) in 1983, ‘Best Pop Instrumental Performance’ (Mariachi Suite) in 1995, and ‘Best Mexican-American Performance’ (La Pistola Y El Corazon) in 1989.
When it comes to Los Lobos’ live performances, the band cannot be denied – even for a bit. They are known for their lively and entertaining shows. The feeling of ‘want-to-dance-to-all-tunes’ will definitely arise while watching them perform. One group who watched one of their shows described the band as one of the solid and genuine musicians in the industry. They said that Los Lobos is truly talented and for that, they certainly want more… More performances! Well, it’s a good thing that Los Lobos is on tour again – more opportunities to see them perform live.
