Join us for the rich Mexican tradition of the Fandango! In Veracruz, Mexico, a fandango is a party where people get together to dance, to play and to sing in a community setting. As local musicians perform the Son Jarocho music, people dance "zapateado" atop a large wooden platform known as a Tarima.

Son de La Tierra - one of East Bay Center's Resident Companies, led by renowned Maestro Artemio Posadas and co-director Lolis García, continues to host monthly regional Fandangos and warmly welcomes members of the public of all ages to join. Fandangos are celebrations that feature traditional Mexican music, dance, song, poetry and a communal spirit of participation. March's Fandango Jarocho, features traditional music from the Sotavento region of Mexico. We hope to see you there!
