Rubén Funkahuatl Guevara is a native Angelino Chicano musician, singer and songwriter, a record producer of Chicano rock and roll and rock en español compilations, and a performance artist, poet, short story writer, historian, journalist, and activist. His newly published book Confessions of a Radical Chicano Doo-Wop Singer (University of California Press, 2018) is a moving memoir of his life and a compelling counter-history of the city of Los Angeles.

“It is as if Rubén Funkahuatl Guevara, polymath Azteca warrior and Chicano superhero, rose with the first East Los Angeles Aztlȧn sun that gave creative light to the barrio.” – Louie Pérez, musician, songwriter with Los Lobos
