weaving and musical Ortega family,

High, The Breakers, and the Broadway Elks before he founded Wagogo in 1993.  A rhythmic cocktail of their Chicano influences, Northern Mexico folk songs, warm calypso island grooves, and the captivating spirit music of Zimbabwe,” Wagogo has performed at many world music festivals and has been broadcast on radio stations from New Mexico to Zimbabwe.
