Son Jarocho Afro-Mexican Music: The Third Root, Lecture and Performance
11:30 am to 1:30 pm
Conference Room B - Hinson Campus Center
The Third Root, Lecture and Performance
Son Jarocho is a lively traditional art form from Veracruz, located on the Gulf Coast of Mexico. It is an improvised, lyrical and danceable music genre that formed out of the melding of three cultures: Arabic-Spanish, African and indigenous Mexican.
Join us for a talk on the roots and history of Son Jarocho along with live performances and demonstrations throughout. We'll also learn about the impact of the African slave trade on the history, languages, musical instruments, rhythms and concepts that are deeply embedded in Mexico, especially Veracruz.
The talk will be bilingual in English and Spanish. This event is ADA accessible. For special accommodations, contact Adriana Garcia at firstname.lastname@example.org or 408.864.5636.
This event is funded by DASB and co-sponsored by the Intercultural/International Studies division, the Euphrat Museum of Art and the Office of Equity, Social Justice and Multicultural Education.
