Zoot Suit


The songs threaded through Zoot Suit were written by Lalo Guerrero and the playwright's brother Daniel Valdez.[1] Guerrero, known as the father of Chicano music, wrote music detailing the Chicano culture during World War II, resulting in the feature of the songs in Zoot Suit.[15] The music combines boogie-woogie and El Paso's version of R&B.[16]
