Meet the Musical Explorers Artists: Mexican Music with Celso
Celso Duarte is a virtuosic harp player from Mexico and one of our Musical Explorers artists this season! During the professional development workshops for our Musical Explorers teachers, Celso was able to tell us about Son Jarocho, a style of music he plays that was born in Veracruz, Mexico. Students learn two traditional Son Jarocho songs: “Lluvia de San Juan” and “Iguana.”
Below is a video of Celso explaining the Son Jarocho rhythms.
