WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The Sones de México ensemble specializes in son, a rich and lively Mexican music tradition and its many regional styles, including huapango, gustos, chilenas, son jarocho and the roots of mariachi music. Audiences will watch in awe as the group works its way through a collection of over 25 folk string, percussion, and wind instruments, bright four-part vocal arrangements, and acrobatic dance demonstrations. The group recreates the atmosphere of a traditional fandango (dance fiesta), where the most colorful, joyous and upbeat sones are played and danced until sunrise. The ensemble's cross-cultural view of music links son to the diverse ethnic roots of Mexico's mestizo culture: Native American, Spanish, and the often-overlooked influence of Black music in Mexico.
