As part of the GRAMMY Museum’s Programs at Home series, moderator Scott Goldman talks with Louie Pérez, Jr. (vocals, guitars) and Steve Berlin (saxes, midisax, keyboards) of the trailblazing GRAMMY and Latin GRAMMY-winning band Los Lobos about the making of their new album, ‘Native Sons’. The band also performs a few songs. The new album, ‘Native Sons’, was produced by Los Lobos in East Los Angeles and finds the band mapping their musical DNA by covering a kaleidoscopic selection of songs from their homeland, ultimately creating a crucial snapshot of L.A.’s musical heritage. Having formed in 1973, Los Lobos quickly found their footing in L.A.’s punk/college-rock scene and began sharing bills with bands like Public Image Ltd. and the Circle Jerks. After making their major-label debut with 1984’s critically lauded ‘How Will the Wolf Survive?’, they went on to achieve such triumphs as contributing a smash-hit cover of Ritchie Valens’s signature song “La Bamba” to the 1987 biopic of the same name, winning three GRAMMY Awards, collaborating with the likes of Elvis Costello and Ry Cooder, and earning massive worldwide critical acclaim.
