Synopsis

Album Description
In Los Mocosos' musical world, rock, Latin, funk and Jamaican ska, blend together in a melting pot of sweaty horns, stinging guitars, and rock solid funky rhythms. After being handpicked by Carlos Santana to open a series of Santana arena dates last year, Los Mocosos went straight into the studio to create their latest release, American Us. The new CD takes this San Francisco based group on a quantum leap into new sonic territory. Produced by Greg Landau (Quetzal, Patato, Bobi Cespedes, Susana Baca) and mixed by Garry Hughes and Donal Hodgson (Sting, Vitamin C, Tina Turner) American Us is the most mature and accessible offering yet from this multi-cultural band. From the fresh cover of the classic low-rider anthem, "I?m Your Puppet" to the irresistible ska/pop of " Hey Mama" American Us is sure to open many new ears to the Los Mocosos sound.

CD Reviews

Los Mocosos does it again!!!!!!!!!!!
Ike bezalel | point roberts, wa | 09/02/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Los Mocosos is a very unique band with strong latin roots from the Mission Dist. If you are a fan of Santana, Malo, War, Tower of Power this is a must CD for you to have in your collection. I have all Los Mocosos cd's and they are all great. This one includes an eclectic mix and a beautiful remake of "I'm your puppet". It is better than the original. These guys will go far and I hope they stay together for a long time to come. It is not very often that I like a whole CD but I like every song on this Cd. This is a cd that you must get. Check out their other cd Shades of Brown also a great cd. Peace Light Love Joy and enjoy this Los Mocosos cd. Ike"

"This is a great CD that takes this band down some new paths. I liked the fresh apporach to Latin music that goes beyond the tired salsa formulas or Ricky Martin crossovers. Senor presidente brings some fresh cumia sounds with a hip hop back beat and some interesting DJ textures. This is a great band to see live and this CD takes their act to the next level. Pa'lante."
Exciting new Music

"Los Mocosos show that they can bring the excitement of their live performances to the studio. This band which has caught the ear of Carlos Santana shows why Carlos calls them "the future of music.""
