Son Jarocho Taller & Fandango
Saturday, November 21, 2009
Son Armado invites you to:
A Son Jarocho Taller & Fandango
Son Jarocho is a regional tradition of folk music, dance, and poetry from the coastal state of Veracruz, Mexico. The origins of Son Jarocho are rooted in the melding of African, Spanish and Indigenous cultures during the process of colonization and the practice of slavery in the Americas. During this time, Son Jarocho emerged as a form of survival and a resistance to colonial control.
Son Jarocho is a popular education based art-form centered around community gatherings & celebrations known as Fandangos. The Fandango involves music, dancing, & poetry in the context of a communally created and shared space, with the tarima (a wooden dance platform) as the gathering point. The sones at the fandango are divided into two main groups: sones de monton, danced only by women, and sones de pareja, for male-female couples.
