Art After 5
 
5:00 p.m. - 8:45 p.m.

For Over four years Jarana Beat has been offering us a journey through Afro-Amerindian culture by fusing Mexican music and dance with international rhythms. With its beginnings at NYU’S Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics Encuentro in Argentina in 2007, Jarana Beat’s music has been offering an interesting mix, thanks to its solid foundation and deep roots. Add to that contagious charm and good vibes, and there is no way you’ll be able to resist getting up and dancing to their tunes. Together with director Sinuhé Padilla-Isunza, the band is composed of professional immigrant musicians from Mexico, and they interact with performers from all over the world, including dancers dressed in traditional costumes who interweave percussive footwork with the music of regional rhythms such as son jarocho, son guerrerense, son huasteco, mexika, and norteña, among others. As a family, they have become masters at blending Mexican and Latin American folk instruments and rhythmic elements that create an environment for expressing the unique music of their homelands.
