Sones de Mexico Ensemble is the country's premier folk music organization specializing in Mexican 'son', including the regional styles of huapango, gustos, chilenas, son jarocho, and more. 25 years ago, the group was formed in Chicago to keep the tradition of Mexican 'son' alive in its many regional forms. The two-time Grammy-nominated group has developed and popularized many original arrangements of Mexican traditional tunes and toured nationally and internationally, including performances at the Getty Museum in L.A., New York's Carnegie Hall, and the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC.

While in Grand Marais, Sones de Mexico will perform an Evening Concert of music and dance for the public at the Arrowhead Center for the Arts (51 West 5th St.) on Friday, March 1 at 7 pm. The event is general admission, $15 adults and $5 youth ages 18 and under. General seating. Tickets can be purchased now at www.aca. tix.com (no fees), by phone at 218-387-1272, and at the box office on March 1 (opens at 6 pm).

In addition to their evening concert, NSMA will host Sones de Mexico's Music Jam and Dance Class for the general public at the Grand Marais Art Colony from 7 to 9 pm on Thursday, Feb. 28. $5 per person, all ages. Bring your guitar, fiddle, drums, banjo, flute, voice, your name it, and comfy shoes if you want to dance! No reservations – just drop in.

Also while in Grand Marais, the ensemble will teach a two-day residency at Great Expectations School, with themes including Musical Geography of Mexico, Mexican Tragic Ballad Songwriting, Danza de Los Viejitos Maskmaking, and Ancient Aztec Dance. 

These activities are funded in part by the Global Awareness Fund of the Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation.
