Encuentro de Soneros en NY

Centuries old music and dance of Veracruz comes alive through the musical collaboration of SONANDO SUR and JARANA BEAT in a week of concerts, workshops and fandangos for New York’s first Encuentro de Soneros, bringing together son jarocho groups from Mexico and New York, all to be featured in an upcoming documentary.

Veracruz is a vibrant region of Mexico with a rich history of music, most notably Son Jarocho, a unique centuries old Mexican music genre 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 is 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.

SONANDO SUR is a collaboration between three Veracruz based musicians who are bringing the rich history of Son Jarocho music and dance to the global stage. The music is rich in poetry, and performed with traditional instruments such as jarana, requinto, and quijada, accompanied by zapateado dancing as the main percussion instrument.

Sonando Sur hopes to preserve the rich history of this music, and promote the culture of southern Veracruz to a wider audience by presenting documentaries, concerts, giving workshops (jarana and zapateado) and throwing fandangos.  They will be joined by members of Jarana Beat, Juan Lucero on the requinto and Sinuhé Padilla-Isunza (musical director) on the leona.
