Los Reyes de Albuquerque is one of the longest lived and influential traditional New Mexican Hispanic musical groups. Co-founded in 1962 by Roberto Martinez Sr. and Ray Flores, Los Reyes has been presenting and preserving traditional New Mexican and Mexican folk music ever since.
Now, more on the beginnings of the Martinez family that has been the driving force behind Los Reyes de Albuquerque. UNM Spanish professor and folklorist Enrique Lamadrid is the narrator.
Our series -Los Reyes de Albuquerque y la Familia de Martinez -is produced by Paul Ingles and Genevieve Russell with support from the New Mexico Humanities Council and the KUNM Independent Producers Fund.
To see photographs by Genevieve Russell, hear the entire series, and get more information on the family and the group, visit the website losreyesstory.org.
An hour-long version of the program will air Sunday morning, 12/6 at 11 on KUNM.
