HOUGHTON - - Be transported to the warmth and exhilaration of a beautiful Mexican evening, courtesy of the Rozsa Center for the Performing Arts, presenting Chicago's premier folk music ensemble Sones de Mexico for two nights, at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, March 18 and 19.
Sones de Mexico was formed in 1994 to keep the tradition of Mexican son alive in its many regional forms. Some of its original work has experimented cross-culturally with symphonic, Irish, folk, country and western, jazz, and rock music, though never abandoning its roots in Mexican son. The term son (which literally translates as "sound") refers to a particular type of Mexican folk music from the countryside.
This presentation is supported by the Performing Arts Fund, a program of Arts Midwest funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts with additional contributions from Michigan Council for the Arts and Cultural Affairs, General Mills Foundation, and Land O'Lakes Foundation.
