Cambalache (from a Spanish word that means exchange), is a group of musicians from East LA., who play son jarocho music from Veracruz, Mexico, a cultural region shaped by Indigenous, African, and Spanish culture. Cambalache promotes traditional son jarocho music in the spirit of the fandango, a traditional community celebration with music and dance.
Prior to their onstage performance at Flushing Town Hall, join Cambalache for an interactive dance workshop, which introduces the history of son jarocho music and dance, and its instrumentation, including the use of zapateado, the percussive dance of Veracruz.
