This show is being presented in collaboration with Beehive Production's Ear-to-the-Ground mini-doc-style film series, featuring the creative community of independent roots music! These 10-15 minute pieces feature a combination of live music performance and interviews with both up-and-coming artists and established veterans as well as in-depth looks at some of the venues and festivals and creators that make up the vibrant fabric of this genre.
About the band
Radio Jarocho plays son jarocho music fashioned after the towns, musicians, and swampy countryside that created it in Veracruz, Mexico. They also write their own songs inspired by this popular genre and tailor them with assorted influences, creating a contemporary repertoire that captures the spirit of the traditional style. The band championed son jarocho by performing over the past decade in dozens of concerts and fandangos in several cities, including New York, Washington DC, Philadelphia, and Boston.
