About

Updating and reinvigorating the lively son jarocho music of Veracruz, Mexico, Conjunto Jardín specializes in presenting this style to a broad audience and features a female requinto player. "Instantly captivating, generating dancing in the aisles - a superb example of the manner in which traditional music and dance continue to have the power to reach out and gather in new, receptive audiences." - Don Heckman, Los Angeles Times
