Los Cenzontles (Nahuatl for The Mockingbirds) is a Mexican-American group that promotes Mexican roots music through research, performance, education and media production. They are based in the working-class city of San Pablo, California where they form the core of Los Cenzontles Cultural Arts Academy, where the members of the group were trained. Los Cenzontles have revived and promoted little-known styles of Mexican regional music since 1989. The group has collaborated with numerous artists that include David Hidalgo, Linda Ronstadt, Los Lobos, Ry Cooder, Taj Mahal, Jackson Browne, The Chieftains and Flaco Jimenez, among others. Los Cenzontles has produced 30 tradition-based and cross-cultural albums, four documentaries, and hundreds of video shorts available on their YouTube channel. 

Preservation Hall Foundation is proud to announce that Los Cenzontles is the latest musical group to join the Artist-in-Residency program this December. The Artist-in-Residence program invites artists who work in a wide variety of media, including music, visual arts, and dance, to engage with the dynamic Preservation Hall community, allowing for exchange and collaborative relationships to develop within the artist.
