Fandango: Afro-Caribbean Influence in Mexican Music and Dance

Fandangos are improvised community celebrations in the son jarocho genre from Veracruz, Mexico that combine Afro-Caribbean, Spanish and indigenous traditions. This program features a performance by Semilla, a New York City-based group, set against the backdrop of the museum’s exhibition: “Textural Rhythms: Constructing the Jazz Tradition – Contemporary African American Quilts”.
