Through multi-disciplinary acts that often include masks, poems, and theatrical sketches interwoven with powerful lyrics and high-energy compositions, Villalobos Brothers (Ernesto, Alberto, and Luis) use their violins and voices to redefine contemporary Mexican music. With their original compositions, they masterfully blend elements of jazz, rock, classical, and Mexican folk to deliver a powerful message of love, brotherhood, and social justice. Artistic Director Humberto Flores (composer and guitarist) has been an integral part of the band since its inception in 2005. Drummer Rosa Avila along with bassist and composer Leo Sherman, complete the line-up.

This event is part of the National Museum of Mexican Art's 2015 Sor Juana Festival.
