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.
