Beyond the Music: A Musical Geography of Mexico

Interactive virtual program

Mexico's folk music and dance styles are very diverse and largely unknown outside of Mexico. There is son jarocho, son huasteco, gusto, son istmeño, chilenas, and over thirty other styles. Different regions of the country have unique instruments, repertoire and techniques rarely heard outside these regions.

Let the GRAMMY™ nominated Sones de Mexico Ensemble, a specialist in these regional styles, be your guide in this special lecture/demo on Mexico's musical geography. They will speak about what to listen for in the major regional styles, perform musical demonstrations and take questions from the audience at the end.

Admission is free and open to the public. Registration is required. Register Now.

Outstanding mixture of learning and musical enjoyment! The band members were on the call, and they held two Q&As with the very appreciative audience. I hope to see them in person one day!
