About Tile painting

Decorated tiles were introduced to the Americas by the Spanish and Portuguese in the 16th century. In many regions of Latin America, there are exceptional tile traditions, such as Talavera in Mexico.

About Son Jarocho

Son Jarocho is a regional folk musical style of Mexican Son (sound) from Veracruz, a Mexican state along the Gulf of Mexico. It represents a fusion of indigenous, Spanish, and African musical elements, reflecting the population that evolved in the region from Spanish colonial times. Son Jarocho is played on jaranas, a small guitar-like instrument, and sung in a style where several singers exchange verses, sometimes improvising humorous or topical content.

The most widely known Son Jarocho song is "La Bamba." Fandangos are at the heart of son jarocho. They're a community celebration where participants gather to play, sing and dance around a wooden platform called a tarima.

Music by Son Pecadores

Son Pecadores is a collective of jarana players and dancers dedicated to learning about and promoting the musical tradition of Son Jarocho in New York.
