VILLALOBOS BROTHERS

Masterfully blending the indigenous rhythms and melodies of their native Veracruz, Mexico, with the intricate harmonies of jazz and classical music, the three Villalobos Brothers deliver an intoxicating brew of musical brilliance, cadence and virtuosity that awakens the senses as it redefines the notions behind Latin music.

Their signature style of fiddling, called fast-chatting violin, has taken them to perform at Carnegie Hall’s Isaac Stern Auditorium, the United Nations 60th Anniversary Gala and the New York Mets’ Shea Stadium, as well as the Latin Grammy’s, Rockefeller Center and Broadway’s New Victory Theater, where their music was described as “High Octane Mexican Fiddling”. In 2011 they appeared at both the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.

Following a concert at Kaufman Center’s Merkin Concert Hall “The Forward” noted that “…they played with exuberant intensity for the appreciative audience…Ernesto returned his attention to his violin, his dark hair flying through the air as his bow raced across the strings…With their heads bowed as if in prayer, their fingers jumping and feet tapping, they weren’t just playing music, they were living it…”
