The Villalobos Brothers are Ernestos, Alberto and Luis Villalobos, lead vocals and violin; Humberto Flores, backup vocals and guitar; Rosa Avila, drums; and Leo Sherman, bass were the first Mexican band to play on October 23rd 2013 at the Apollo Theater in Harlem.

The Villalobos Brothers were born and raised in Xalapa, Veracruz, Mexico.

They spent their childhood listening to their grandmother Cristina Vásquez sing and play guitar and accordion after a day’s work.

They took up the violin as children and soon learned to sing and play other instruments, including guitar and piano.


The Villalobos Brothers have been acclaimed as one of today’s leading contemporary Mexican ensembles, performing high-octane Mexican fiddling, according to a release.

Their original compositions and arrangements masterfully blend and celebrate the richness of Mexican folk music with the intricate harmonies of jazz and classical music.

Here are the Villalobos Brothers performing at the Apollo Theatre in Harlem:
