Ida y Vuelta
Ida y Vuelta
Ida y Vuelta’s presentations come from a long tradition of Mexican folk music called Son Jarocho. The genre is a fusion of African, Arabic-Spanish and Indigenous music and poetry. Ida y Vuelta’s instrumentation is native to the Veracruz region and includes jaranas (8 string small guitars), requinto (lead 4 string guitar), leona (acoustic bass), zapateado (percussive foot tapping) and they also incorporate the cajón (wood peruvian box) and cajita (small peruvian box) for reinforcements.

Ida y Vuelta plays traditional “sones” which some date back over 300 years as well as their own arrangements and original tunes. They respectfully perform this music and aspire to make known its rich historical and musical value, specifically here in the U.S.
