Son de Madera

Founded in 1992, Son de Madera forms part of the current jaranero movement. Its main goal is to diffuse son jarocho based on the research of traditional forms, the incorporation of new sounds, and the revival of community gatherings of music-making and dance called fandangos. Their recordings have been used in film soundtracks, television documentaries, and theater.
