Sones de Mexico

Sones de Mexico

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 ensemble has developed and popularized many original arrangements of Mexican traditional tunes and has 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 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 (Feb. 27 & 28). They will also perform a program at Sawtooth Elementary, teach a folkloric dance class for adults and teens, and perform an evening concert for the public (March 1 at 7 pm).
