  • Quetzal: 'Cielito Lindo' y 'Tragafuegos'

    Quetzal, a musical group from East Los Angeles, combines elements of Mexican música ranchera, salsa, Chicano rock, R&B, and international popular music. During the 2014 Smithsonian Folklife Festival, Quetzal performed “Cielito Lindo,” inspired by the late Smithsonian Folkways Recordings artist Pete Seeger, and the original song “Tragafuegos.”
