Festival de Sones

September 17, 2010 @ 9:00 pm


The 1st Annual Festival de Sones is a 4 day event that highlights the Son genre of Mexico, a fusion of indigenous (primarily Huastecan), Spanish, and African styles found on the Caribbean coast. It is a genre that reflects the population which evolved in the region from Spanish colonial times.

The instruments most commonly associated with Son are Jarana, Requinto, Harp, Pandero, Cajón, and Quijada (an instrument made of a donkey or horse jawbone). More modern forms include congas and electric bass. The group Quetzal from Los Angeles has even fused it with R&B and Rock. Some popular groups who have incorporated this lesser known Mexican style include Cafe Tacuba, Ozomatli, and Zack de la Rocha.
