Presentation on Son Jarocho
Son jarocho artist Laura Marina Rebolloso-Cuellar will present “Son Jarocho: A Living Being of Music, Dance, and Poetry,” a discussion and performance, on Thursday, June 3, 2:00–4:00 p.m., in the CSRC Library (144 Haines Hall). Ms. Rebolloso-Cuellar is a dancer, poet, and virtuoso performer of the leona, the largest and lowest-pitched instrument in the jarana guitar family. In 1992 she cofounded Son de Madera, an ensemble that is regarded as one of the most important exponents of son jarocho. The event, which is free and open to the public, is cosponsored by the CSRC, the Latin American Institute, and the Center for Mexican Studies.
