Video Title:
Musical Migrations: The Creative Travels of César Castro
Description:
As a young teen in Veracruz, Mexico, César Castro was taken by the state’s rural music: son jarocho. He began playing with Grupo Mono Blanco and eventually moved to Los Angeles, California, where he performs with the Chicano rock band Quetzal. A professional musician and instrument maker, Castro emphasizes that son jarocho is more than a chords or rhythms. “It’s how you live.” Producers, directors: Daniel Sheehy, Charlie Weber Camera: Charlie Weber, Akira Boch Story, editing: Ashley Avila © Smithsonian Institution, 2019
