Quetzal (Abel Gutierrez)

Quetzal

Quetzal is an ensemble of highly talented musicians which aims to create good music that tells the social, cultural, political, and musical stories of people in struggle. The group has a root in the complex cultural currents of life in the barrio, its social activism, its strong feminist stance, and its rock and roll musical beginnings. Besides being a rock band, the group and its members participate in a much larger web of musical, cultural, and political engagement. Quetzal’s approach to music is influenced by more than the East L.A.
