Los Cojolites: 
Son Sin Fin

Los Cojolites are a collective of soneros who currently work and live together in Jaltipan, Veracruz, Mexico. They started in 1997 as a workshop studying their regional dance, a poetry and music known as Son Jarocho. Following the release of their first album “El Conejo” in 2001, they traveled throughout much of Spain, France and the United States playing at such places as the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C, and appearing on the soundtrack of the film “Frida.” Although no longer children, they continue to inspire a younger generation of soneros. By keeping respect for tradition and by having the courage and creativity to innovate based on those traditions, Los Cojolites will continue to contribute quality music to the 400 year old genre known as Son Jarocho.
