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.

The name "Los Cojolites" comes from a bird (Pencople purpurascens Wagler), a kind of pheasant that was vererated as a god of the trees by the ancient Nahuatl speaking people who lived around this area. The Cojolite Bird is especially known for the length of is song, a full uninterrupted five minutes of it, at the crack of dawn.

Among the hills and fields, villages and small cities in the southern part of Mexico's Veracruz state, the lively string band music known as the "Son Jarocho" is the characteristic musical and dance expression of the region's people. It is a genre that fuses the three great cultures that blended so flavorfully into today's Mexico" Spanish (which is itself a blend of Christian Europe and Muslim North Africa), Black African and the indigenous. Around these parts community spirit is forged in the heart of its fandangos, fiestas, which amalgamate a strong social metal with its own special kind of spirituality and life style.
