Enjoy a lively evening of music, dancing, and zapateado– bring your dance shoes and instruments, or just come and enjoy. Son Jarocho is a lively traditional art form from the southern Mexican state of Veracruz that sits on the coast of the Gulf of Mexico. It is a lyrical and danceable music genre 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.
