QUIZ: Where are Tapatíos, Jarochos, Regios, Chilangos, and Calentanos from? What is their music like, and how did it come to sound like that?
Experience a guided tour through Mexico’s folk music regions with live demonstrations by the Ensemble. Find out everything you ever wanted to know about Mexico’s regional folk culture and music (but were afraid to ask).
This presentation of ‘Beyond the Music’ will be preceeded by a free Mexican music singing class.
