The Friends of Children of Walla Walla are bringing in Banda Los Recoditos for a family festival celebrating the Latino Culture in Walla Walla.

Banda Los Recoditos is a Mexican band formed in Mazatlán, Sinaloa. It was founded in 1989 by friends and family members of Banda el Recodo by Cruz Lizárraga. Alfonso Lizárraga and Pancho Barraza, the first vocalists, were two of the more than dozen bandmembers comprising the original incarnation of the band. After releasing several albums, in 2010 the band released their album ¡Ando Bien Pedo!, featuring the single of the same title, which became a number-one hit on the Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart. Banda Recoditos is considered one of the top bands in Mexico and a favorite of Latinos in the United States as they play to sold-out crowds across the country.

The band was nominated for two important Latin-category Grammys in 2016 with their album Me Está Gustando. Banda Los Recoditos was also nominated for "Band Of the Year" in the Premios de La Radio awards.
