Video Title:
Dance forms of Mexico's son huasteco
Description:
Soaring, florid poetry memorializing the longing, pleasure, and pain of love, delivered in song with equally soaring high falsetto breaks, marks the classic style of the son huasteco, music created by rural people of the northeastern region of Mexico known as La Huasteca. The son huasteco is typically performed by three musicians on violin and huapanguera and jarana guitars. The music has a vigorous and marked rhythmic sound and is often accompanied by social dancing. Watch Artemio Posades Jiménez, lyricist and dancer with Los Camperos de Valles, demonstrate the dance forms associated with son huasteco music.
