This video features the musicians of Son de Madera, who feature on the Smithsonian Folkways album "Son de Mi Tierra". For more information on the album, see: http://www.folkways.si.edu/albumdetai...

The improvisatory, string-driven music of Veracruz called son jarocho has enjoyed several decades of major resurgence. This "back-to-the-future" recording allies elder farmer and rancher musicians with the next generation of forward-looking innovators who comprise the group Son de Madera. Son de Mi Tierra ("They are from my land") burgeons with creativity and reverence for both the old and the new as it draws from rural roots to produce fresh interpretations of this popular Mexican regional music. 13 tracks, 52 minutes, 40-page booklet with extensive bilingual notes and photographs.
