WAR & Los Lonely Boys

An American Original; WAR was the first and most successful musical crossover phenomenon that forever fused rock, jazz, Latin, and R&B, while transcending racial and cultural barriers with a multi-ethnic line-up; a musical melting pot and an enduring influence that has sold nearly 50 million records to date. Starting as a small rock band out of East Los Angeles in the 1970s, Los Lonely Boys hit their stride when they started experimenting with sounds from their Mexican heritage using rock, blues and jazz.
