Join us for a free Son Jarocho concert by Son Pecadores and Tsikuri art making workshop.
Son Pecadores is a collective of jaraneros based in New York City, dedicated to learning and promoting Son Jarocho music in the East Coast.
Son Jarocho is a Mexican folk 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.
In Veracruz, Mexico a fandango is a community-based celebration where people get together to dance, play and sing. Musicians play and sing Son Jarocho music while people dance the "zapateado" atop a Tarima, a large wooden platform.
Participants will create a Tsikuri, a traditional Wixarika (Huichol) yarn-weaving object known as the Eye of God, inspired by the visionary art of the Wixarika (Huichol) people native to the states of Durango, Jalisco, Nayarit, and Zacatecas. The workshop is appropriate for beginners as well as those with art experience (kids and parents), one or multiple sessions available.
