Los Tigres del Norte
The 65th Annual GRAMMY Nominees • 53m
On September 10, 2019, the GRAMMY Museum was pleased to screen the new documentary film, Los Tigres del Norte at Folsom Prison, ahead of its Netflix debut, and host a panel discussion featuring Los Tigres del Norte, two-time Oscar-winning composer and eighteen-time Latin GRAMMY-winner Gustavo Santaolalla (who accompanied the band to Folsom and produced the music for the film and live album), Director Tom Donahue, and Co-Writer/Producer Zach Horowitz. The panel was moderated by Gabriel Abaroa Jr., President & CEO of the Latin Recording Academy.
In the film, the legendary band, Los Tigres del Norte, travels to Folsom Prison to perform for the inmates, fifty years after Johnny Cash played his historic concert there in 1968. The documentary capturing that visit, Los Tigres del Norte at Folsom Prison, is more than a concert film. It's a journey into the world of Latinx incarceration told through the songs of Los Tigres and interviews with Folsom's Latinx inmates. The multi-GRAMMY winning band is one of the most popular and influential artists in the history of Latin music. Five decades into their career, they continue to sell out concerts across the U.S. and Latin America. Their music has always given a voice to the lost, forgotten, and powerless in their community, and their documentary's focus on the issue of Latino incarceration is particularly timely. The film debuted as a Netflix Original Documentary in 2019 for Hispanic Heritage Month. The soundtrack from the documentary is the first live album released from Folsom in 50 years, since Johnny Cash.
