Indigenous Dance 

Son de Madera at La Pena.

Playing the sensuous folk dance music (son jarocho) of Veracruz and eastern Mexico, the acclaimed band Son de Madera brings its lively style and indigenous instruments, including the Veracruz harp and requinto (small plucked guitar), to La Peña on Monday. While it's great listening music, Son de Madera also plays for dancers; all five members are experts in zapateado dancing. The group was formed in 1992 to take this style to the rest of the world, and has performed in Europe and Canada as well as across the United States, releasing three CDs of its infectious music. 8 p.m., $15, $12.
