Music and Art in the Park 

Son Pecadores Music Performance - May 15th, 1PM

River Park, Boston Road and E 180th Street

BRAC is pleased to present Son Pecadores, a Mexican folk music group, performing on Saturday, May 15th at 1pm as a part of a day of events that will explore and celebrate the immigrant experience. 

This Fandango, a community party, will take place in River Park at Boston Road and E 180th Street in the Bronx. Everyone is invited to enjoy Music at 1pm and a Mural Workshop from 10am - 6pm in beautiful surroundings on the Bronx River.

Son Pecadores is a collective of jaraneros based in NYC, dedicated to learning and promoting Son Jarocho music on the East Coast. Son Jarocho is a style of folk music from the Mexican state of Veracruz, on the Gulf of Mexico. It represents a mixture of indigenous, Spanish and African musical elements, thus reflecting the population that developed in that region during the colonial era.

The Son Jarocho is played with jaranas, stringed instruments smaller than guitars, and is sung in a style in which several participants exchange verses, sometimes improvised, which are very poetic and often with comic content and even offensive. The best-known song of the Son Jarocho is "La Bamba".

The members of Son Pecadores are Algeria Arreola: jarana second, zapateado, jarana; Henry Chalfant: jarana second, jarana first; Felipe Fournier: jarana first, tambourine; Aurelio del Muro: first jarana, tuxteco violin; Mehmet Kucukozer: first jarana, third jarana, lioness; Paula Sánchez-Kucukozer: marimbol, zapateado and Claudia Valentina: jarana first, zapateado.

BRAC will also offer a community Mural Workshop: Flora and Fauna of our Countries on May 15th from 10am - 6pm at River Park. Participants will create a tape mural using typical animals and flowers from our countries considering how animals and plants around us are important in the construction of family ties, identity and life experiences.
