Los Cojolites was born in 1995 as part of a project dedicated to recover artistic expressions and cultural rights of indigenous people in the ancient town of Cosoleacaque, Veracruz, Mexico. They begin their recordings with El conejo (The Rabbit, 2001), included in the soundtrack of Frida, the Oscar-winning film music directed by Salma Hayek. In 2008 the band recorded their second album No tiene fin (No End) in San Francisco, produced by Greg Landau, where Lila Downs participates as a guest artist.

The influence of Arabic and Flamenco music, mixed with the various afro rhythms and indian celebrations in Veracruz, gave identity in this mestizaje (mixture), to the Son Jarocho, a musical genre that identifies the region, for more than three hundred years.
