When the community comes together in the state of Veracruz the resulting party is a fandango, a celebration powered by the Afro-Mexican style of son jarocho and the percussive zapateado dance. With two son jarocho groups making their Yerba Buena Gardens Festival debut, let the fandango begin! Cambalache (a word meaning “exchange”) is a Chicano-jarocho group based in East Los Angeles known for inviting the public to participate in their presentations. Tarimba is a band comprised of Bay Area multi-instrumentalists dedicated to son jarocho’s community-building ethos, playful lyrics, and improvisational sensibility.
