Event

Sones de México Ensemble was formed as a quartet in 1994 and through the years grew to a sextet of multi-instrumentalists. Today, the original founding members, Juan Díes and Gonzalo Cordova, are joined by Lorena Iñiguez, Zacbé Pichardo, Eric Hines, and Rudy Piñón to form the country's premier folk music organization specializing in Mexican 'son.' All six members of Sones de Mèxico Ensemble are educators and between them, they are skilled at over 80 traditional Mexican folk instruments. Their diverse repertoire, rich in colors, textures and rhythms demonstrates that there is more to Mexican music than mariachi! Each performance intertwines Mexican culture and heritage by featuring the regional styles of huapango, gustos, chilenas, son jarocho through original arrangements and new compositions. Whether they are performing for school children or in front of sold-out audiences across the country, their concerts entertain the senses and explore the riches of Mexican music, dance and culture. This program will be free and open to the public, is sponsored by the Lotus Education and Arts Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts.
