Come to the 4th Annual San Francisco Son Jarocho Festival!

San Francisco Son Jarocho Festival is pleased to announce our third annual festival, August 11-22, 2015.

Son Jarocho is a folkloric music style from the Southern Mexican state of Veracruz This Afro-Mestizo hybrid form blends Spanish, Indigenous Meso-American and African elements into a joyous celebration of Mexican identity. In the last decade this style has seen resurgence as many young people have adopted it and expanded the sonic and rhythmic possibilities that it offers.

 
This annual festival has become a cornerstone of the emerging Son Jarocho music scene in the San Francisco Bay Area, attracting the top performers in this genre and providing workshops for local musicians to interact with the masters of this music.
