Sones de Mexico Ensemble and the Consulate General of Mexico – El Paso, TX “Viernes Cultural” series present a special live stream version of our signature “Beyond the Music: A Musical Geography of Mexico” program.
Experience a guided tour through Mexico’s folk music regions with music, narration, and multimedia. Different regions of the country have unique instruments, repertoire, and techniques rarely heard outside these regions. Styles covered include son jarocho, son huasteco, gusto, son istmeño, chilenas, and a dozen other styles.
Streamed via the Consulate’s YouTube Channel and the Centro Cultural Mexicano Paso del Norte Facebook page, the presentation will include pre-recorded material and live Q&A with band members.
Beyond the Music is sponsored in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
