We started this recording on a back porch in East Los Angeles With members of Los Lobos, And Then returned to the roots of the song in Veracruz, Mexico. As we traveled, musicians everywhere mixed the traditional and rock 'n' roll styles of "La Bamba" into a new Song Around The World.
A quiet voice is singing something to me
An age old song 'bout the brave in this land here of the free,
One time one night in America
Each Los Lobos verse is a tiny tragic chapter in the story of America. Full lyrics here.
