Albuquerque, NM – In 1962, Roberto Martinez, a civilian Air Force employee working at Kirtland Air Force Base, put together a little musical group to moonlight in the evenings and on the weekends. He and his trumpet-playing friend Ray Flores called the band they founded Los Reyes de Albuquerque.

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.

Southern New Mexico farmers are in the final stages of this year's chile harvest and unlike previous years, fewer field workers are needed to gather red pods for market. That's because in U.S. chile-growing regions, machine harvesters are steadily replacing workers in the red chile harvest.
