Quetzal, the groundbreaking band from the barrios of East Los Angeles has been creating heartfelt Latin folk and roots-rock music for over a decade. With the successful tours and concerts alongside the likes of Los Lobos, Ozomatli, Taj Mahal and Michelle Shocked, Quetzal has proven beyond doubt their ability to play intimate clubs and large arenas alike -- and gaining hardcore fans at every stop. The band combines rock, Afro-Cuban, country blues, and jazz elements to support the wide-ranging, bilingual and supercharged vocals of Martha Gonz├ílez.  The retro-futuristic mix has garnered praise from critics  the LA Times calls them a "world-class act"  and support from such luminaries as Los Lobos. Quetzal simultaneously forges a sound that makes you dance and contemplate change. Their unique combination of community activism and creative compositions has allowed them to travel the world using music as a tool for creating a global network of musicians committed to building community. The band's fifth album is scheduled for release on the Smithsonian Folkways label this fall.

Profits from this concert will be donated to EcoViva, a non-profit organization funding projects to reduce hunger and achieve environmental sustainability in El Salvador.
