Edwardo Marmolejo (August 18, 1973) is a Chicano musician and entrepreneur originally from Hollywood, CA. As a teenager, he started his musical journey as a punk rocker, performing in venues all over the city.
In the early 90s after traveling to London and Jamaica, having a close connection with the rasta community, his genre started shifting to reggae music in a unique freestyle flow with Spanish Patwa English.
He started performing in Los Angeles, CA live under the stage name, Lalo Lion, especially as a special guest on shows of Quingo Sol, originators of the Chicano Reggae genre from Los Angeles, CA. They would open for known musicians such as Alika, Fidel Nadal, Yami Bolo, and Shinehead, who would acknowledge his performance.
In 2013, he started his band by the name of Mas Fuego, where he composed and wrote original music that ended up being an instant success in the underground reggae community, filling up venues to capacity and performing in legendary spaces such as House of Blues (Hollywood, CA).
Since Covid19, Lalo Lion & Mas Fuego have not been performing live. However, they have been working on an album.
