Join Radio Jarocho and master
Join Radio Jarocho and master Zenen Zeferino and learn how to play son jarocho. Get familiar with the several string instruments used in Jarocho: requinto and jarana + percussions (tamborine, cajon, horse jaw, zapateado). There’ll be dancing and singing as well, of course.
Radio Jarocho plays the rowdy, upbeat, and at times melancholic music of the countryside of Veracruz, Mexico, mixing it with the sounds of New York’s urban life for over ten years. Having recently joined forces with son jarocho legend Zenen Zeferino, they deliver performances that are passionate, energetic, and true to the roots of the genre.
Radio Jarocho & Zenen Zeferino have played concerts at festivals and venues in the US east coast, including Kennedy Center, Brooklyn Bowl, Joe’s Pub, La Casita at Lincoln Center, Le Poisson Rouge, Celebrate Mexico Now! and Celebrate Brooklyn. They are gearing up to release Rios de Norte y Sur, their first studio production together. With this album, Radio Jarocho & Zenen Zeferino celebrate the music that unites Veracruz and New York, Mexico and the United States through original songs and new arrangements for old jarocho tunes, offering a modern take on a traditional genre by fusing it with sounds that have become part of New York City’s musical fabric — flamenco, cumbia, rock, baroque, and jazz.
This is a free event, but voluntary donations for the band will be appreciated.
