Flamenco in Mexico

| Leave a comment

Two groups, Elohim and Cabal y Fuego, demonstrate that this Spanish art form is alive and well in Mexico. Elohim is more directly associated with the Andalucian art where Cabal y Fuego takes off in a new direction with Mexican music.

Fiesta Jerez

| Leave a comment

Jerez, Zacatecas has the most awesome Saturday before Easter Fiesta you can imagine. It´s ranch country and hundreds of charros (Mexican cowboys with the wide sombreros) take to the streets and if you don´t know before what is Banda music, well you will. The traditional burning of Judas effigies surprises our cameraperson as they are explosions, kind of scary. Its the wild kickoff to the springtime fair of this great state.
