Fans of Grammy nominated Latin artist Quetzal and Los Cojolites will perform a free pre-Grammy concert Feb 9 at the Breed Street Shul in Boyle Heights.

Quetzal and Los Cojolites are both nominated for Grammy’s in the Latin genre division, for Best Latin Rock, Urban or Alternative Album. The bands incorporate a style categorized as fadango jarocho, which mixes Spanish, African and Indigenous music and dance.

The free concert is being held to celebrate Grammy’s first time multi-nominations of fandango jarocho influenced albums, and will take place at 8 p.m. at the Breed Street Shul located at 247 N. Breed St., Los Angeles, 90033.

The event will also include special appearances by members of Ozomatli and La Santa Cecilia.

“We have all been connected through the fandango practice but also through the ongoing commitment we have to our communities by the projects we continuously create and engage in together,” said Martha Gonzalez of Quetzal.
