from the Gulf Coast and interior Mexico and
ACROSS THE BORDER
review by Norman Warwick
Son Jarocho was born as the regional sound of Veracruz but over time became a Mexican national genre, even transnational, genre–a touchstone of Chicano identity in the United States. Mario Barradas and Son Jarocho traces a musical journey from the Gulf Coast to interior Mexico and across the border, describing the transformations of Son Jarocho along the way.
