Los Lobos tunes in on Disney classics

Group to interpret songs from films, theme park

Mexican-American band Los Lobos will release “Los Lobos Goes Disney,” the group’s interpretations of songs from the Mouse’s films and theme parks, on Disney Sound Oct. 27.

Grammy-winning combo will cover such movie evergreens as “Heigh-Ho,” “Cruella De Vil,” “Bella Notte,” and “Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah” plus numbers associated with the Haunted Mansion and Enchanted Tiki Roomtheme-park attractions.

Disney corporate theme “When You Wish Upon a Star” and Disneyland perennial “It’s a Small World” are performed instrumentally.

Collection — which will feature the L.A. sextet on traditional Mexican instruments — will revisit “I Wan’na Be Like You,” which they first essayed on “Stay Awake,” producer Hal Willner’s offbeat 1988 Disney music recital.

Group launches a national tour today in Fresno.
