Enjoy a lively evening of music, dancing, and zapateado– bring your dance shoes and instruments, or just come and enjoy the music and dance! Son Jarocho is a lyrical and danceable music genre from Veracruz, Mexico that formed in the melding of three cultures: Arabic-Spanish, African and indigenous Mexican. It is at the same time highly improvised and highly structured—filled with complex poly-rhythms and musical dialogue in its dance, song, poetry and music. The basic instrumentation of the son jarocho includes the jarana jarocha, guitarra de son (both guitar-like instruments) and zapateado (percussive footwork).
