Los Cenzontles (Nahuatl for The Mockingbirds) is a Mexican American group, cultural arts academy, and media production studio based in San Pablo, California. Los Cenzontles have revived and promoted little known styles of Mexican regional music since 1989, through research, performance, education, recordings, and videos. The group has collaborated with numerous artists, including David Hidalgo, Linda Ronstadt, Los Lobos, Ry Cooder, Taj Mahal, Jackson Browne, The Chieftains, and Flaco Jimenez. Los Cenzontles was begun in 1989 by Eugene Rodriguez as part of a California Arts Council artist residency. The goal was to create a place for area youth to learn traditional Mexican music and dance.
