Son Jarocho is a folkloric music style from the Southern Mexican state of Veracruz. This Afro- Mestizo hybrid\form blends Spanish, Indigenous Meso-American and African elements into a joyous celebration of Mexican identity. In the last decade this style has seen resurgence as many young people have adopted it and expanded the sonic and rhythmic possibilities it offers.
San Francisco Son Jarocho Festival is excited to offer workshops for local musicians and the community in a rare opportunity to interact with the masters of this music.
