Workshop: Introduction to the Sones de Tarima of Tixtla, Guerrero

Item Options
Price: $0.00
Quantity: *

This workshop will feature the basics of musical and choreographic genres used during the traditional fandangos of the community of Tixtla, Guerrero, such as the gusto, son—derecho and chusco—and the zamba.  An essential characteristic of these ethnochoreological and ethnomusicological practices is the use of a rectangular platform made with long wooden planks upon which the dancers—a couple—perform the regional dances in exhibition style. The instrumentalists and singers will perform the music in the two-part vocals characteristic of the región. 

Maestra Lourdes Santiago will coordinate this workshop with the assistance of Maestros Isabel Galicia, José Luis Sagredo, José Gabriel García, and José Juan Pérez, all of Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla, México.

Workshop participants may bring string instruments or cajón, and be prepared to dance.

Donations to support the artists are welcome.

Sponsored by the AFS Chican@ Section, the Dance and Movement Analysis Section, and the Folklore Latino, Latinoamericano, y Caribeño Section.
