Laura Marina Rebolloso Cuellar is a dancer, poet, and a virtuoso performer on the leona, the largest and lowest pitched member of the jarana guitar family that is popular in the Veracruz region of Mexico. In 1992 she co-founded the ensemble Son de Madera, regarded today as one of the most important exponents of son jarocho and a champion of the community music celebration called fandango.
She directs a renowned youth performing ensemble at the Xalitic school in Xalapa, and teaches dance at the University of Veracruz.
During winter and spring quarters of 2010, Rebolloso is serving as a visiting artist at the University of Washington in the dance and music departments, and has been working with Seattle community groups to advance the Seattle Fandango Project, building relationships through participatory music.
