Alberto Villa-Lobos

Alberto, Ernesto and Luis are the Villa-Lobos Brothers, a vibrant band of multi-colored melodies and rhythms. Classically trained violinists and composers, they were born and raised in the Caribbean state of Veracruz, Mexico and they soon developed their own style of fiddling, called "fast chatting" violin. 

The Villa-Lobos Brothers are back after a long period of studies in New York, Belgium and Germany respectively. Their Carnegie Hall concert this past December with Calpulli Mexican Dance Company was a sold-out success and their appearance at the 2006 Latin Grammys in New York further consolidated the group's versatile nature. 

Singer-songwriters and innate champions of the folkloric music of Mexico and the Veracruz-Huasteca Region, this time around they will come together as an auditory counterpart to Alberto's debut exhibition: Murals, Music and Masks of Mexico August 2nd and 30th 2007 at El Taller Latino Americano. Since many of Alberto's works are directly related or inspired by traditional Huasteca music, the Villa-Lobos Brothers have decided to offer two free concerts; at the opening and closing of the exhibition. 

Listen to a recorded interview with Alberto Villa-Lobos on "La Que Buena" 92.7 FM, Sunday July 22nd.
