Patricio Hidalgo will explore the historical roots and recent developments of son jarocho, the traditional music and dance of southern Veracruz, performing a variety of regional styles and influences present in the jaranero movement through sones of indigenous, Arab-Spanish, African and Afro-Jarocho inspiration.
Originally from San Andres Tuxtla, Veracruz, Patricio Hidalgo is a renowned composer, performer, teacher and scholar specializing in son jarocho and the traditional zapateado of the fandango dance. Grandson of Arcadio Hidalgo, one of the legendary trovadores and composers of the region, he was introduced to music at the age of ten. Patricio Hidalgo has been a member of Mono Blanco and distinguished director of groups such as Chuchumbé and Quemayama. He is currently working on a project about Afro-Jarocho dance.
