About Son Jarocho and Fandangos

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.
