Sorry, this entry is only available in Español.

Centuries old music and dance of Veracruz comes alive through New York’s second Encuentro de Soneros y Jaraneros, bringing together guest artists from Los Angeles, Washington D.C., New York and Veracruz-Mexico.  All in the spirit of sharing their knowledge of the traditional and contemporary interpretations of Son Jarocho music and culture through workshops, concerts and of course, FANDANGOS!

Veracruz is a vibrant region of Mexico with a rich history of music, most notably Son Jarocho, a unique Mexican music genre (and way of life) that originated in the colonial era and fuses Spanish, indigenous and African rhythms to create a musical poetry that is a central part of the musical heritage of the region.  Son Jarocho has been experiencing a resurgence of interest through the works of young musicians who experienced the history of the genre through their elders, and are now reinterpreting a modern historical continuation of the music and a devotion to exposing new generations to the Son Jarocho heritage.
