Since 1971, Luis has dedicated his life to the study of Pre-Columbian musical instruments and researching musical traditions among Mexico’s ethnic groups. In 1980, he released his first album and pioneered a unique new music genre in the process. In the Navel of the Moon featured modern music he composed and played on those ancient instruments.
Thirty years later in 2000, Luis received the Fellowship Award from the California Arts Council for his modern composition featuring Pre-Columbian instruments, Sanctuary of the Butterflies. Since then he has toured the American Continent performing, lecturing and teaching the history of ancient music. He has also composed music for dance, theater and film productions.
