Described as “one of L.A.’s most important bands,” by the Los Angeles Times, Grammy Award-winning ensemble Quetzal was founded by Chicano rock guitarist Quetzal Flores and joined by lead singer, percussionist and songwriter Martha Gonzalez. Forging a distinctive, multi-ethnic sound that blends Mexican, Afro-Cuban, rock and jazz influences, Quetzal creates songs that tell musical stories rooted in the complex cultural currents of life in the barrio, social activism and a strong feminist stance. Quetzal has graced stages across the US, Canada, Asia and Mexico for nearly twenty six years and continues to model how music, culture, and sociopolitical ideology come together on and off the stage.
