Son de Madera Concert Fandanguito to Follow
Son de Madera is an artistic group who specializes in the interpretation and composition of one of the traditional musical genres of southern Mexico: the Son Jarocho. Formed in 1992, Son Jarocho rises from the heart of fandango. Son Jarocho music travels through the world creating and recreating sounds that are nourished by a deep knowledge of the ancient roots of the genre, and at the same time evokes and renews tradition, distinguished by the cultivation of music, the song and Jarocho poetry as a living tradition. Within the cultural diversity that resurfaces today in the State of Veracruz, Son de Madera presents a musical and scenic proposal that, far from its origins, develops and takes this tradition to a high level, thanks to the creativity and life experience of each of its members. A Son de Madera performance is based on a recreation of the various elements that are intertwined in fandango: the music, the singing, the poetry, and the improvisation.
