Amiguitos de La Peña Kickoff & Hall of Fame
Family concert with Jose Luis Orozco. JLO will be inducted into La Peña's Hall of Fame. Reception to follow the concert.

Born in Mexico City, José-Luis Orozco learned many songs from his grandmother. At age 8, José-Luis became a member of the Mexico City Boy's Choir, and traveled the world visiting 32 countries in Europe, the Caribbean, Central and South America. At age 19, José-Luis moved to California where he went to college and earned his Bachelor's degree from the University of California, Berkeley and a Master's degree in Multicultural Education from the University of San Francisco.

José-Luis Orozco dedicates himself to what he truly enjoys  singing for children. He has built a successful career as a children's author, songwriter, performer and recording artist. He has recorded 13 volumes of Lírica Infantil, Latin American Children's Music, and written three successful, award-winning books, De Colores (Dutton 1994), Diez Deditos  Ten Little Fingers (Dutton 1997), and Fiestas (Dutton 2002). CD's of De Colores, Diez Deditos and Fiestas, accompany these colorful books and present an extraordinary bilingual collection of songs, rhymes, tongue twisters, lullabies, games and holiday celebrations gathered from Spanish-speaking countries.

José-Luis Orozco's most recent book Rin, Rin, Rin, Do, Re, Mi, richly illustrated by Caldecott Medal winner, David Diaz, is a delightfully, lyrical bilingual (English and Spanish) children's book which shows how everyday family activities such as cooking, singing, reading and storytelling foster essential early literacy skills such as letter recognition and language development.

José-Luis Orozco is the father of four and grandfather to two children. He currently lives in Los Angeles, California.
