SON LUNA (The Kennedy Center)


Son Luna was formed in 1995 from a sonera family tradition in Tlacotalpan, Veracruz.  The group was enriched with the integration and participation of musicians from different backgrounds and styles while based in Xalapa, Veracruz.  Son Luna's musical style, son jarocho, makes arrangements and compositions which highlight the different musical influences -- such as African, Arabic, flamenco, Amerindian, and mestizo cultures -- that shape the zapateado and its rhythms as an indispensible tool.  The group has performed at several venues around the globe, including Peru, Cuba, France, and Spain.  They are currently working on the integration of different orchestral groups (Group Jazz, Chamber Orchestra, and Big Band) at their concerts and preparing material for their latest CD.
