About Radio Jarocho
Radio Jarocho plays the rowdy, upbeat, and at times melancholic music of the countryside of Veracruz, Mexico, and has been mixing it with the sounds of New York’s urban life for over ten years. They deliver performances that are passionate, energetic, and true to the roots of the genre. Radio Jarocho has played concerts at festivals and venues in the east coast, including Kennedy Center, Brooklyn Bowl, Joe's Pub, La Casita at Lincoln Center, Le Poisson Rouge, Celebrate Mexico Now! and Celebrate Brooklyn.
The band collaborates with master son jarocho musicians on a consistent basis, celebrating the union between Mexico and the United States through original songs and new arrangements of old jarocho tunes and offering a modern take on a traditional genre by fusing it with sounds that have become part of New York City's musical fabric.
In May 2018, Radio Jarocho released the album "Rios de Norte y Sur" in conjunction with master jarana player and singer Zenen Zeferino. In 2019, the band will be opening their doors to other master musicians from Veracruz, continuing the tradition of working collaboratively on both sides of the border.
