Sones de México and the Mexican Folkloric Dance Company of Chicago

Saturday, October 7, 2017 - 7:30pm
Lund Auditorium

Formed in Chicago’s historic Pilsen neighborhood in 1994, Sones de México Ensemble is the country’s premier folk music organization specializing in Mexican ‘son’. You can expect a dynamic show with tasty arrangements of traditional Mexican folk tunes and clever experiments with Bach, Led Zeppelin, Woody Guthrie and Buck Owens, lush three-part harmonies, and many instrumental colors as the multi-instrumentalist group works its way through a collection of over 30 string, wind and percussion instruments: harps, fiddles, marimba, guitars of all sizes and shapes, and even a donkey-jaw!

Sones de México's U.S. and international tours include such prestigious venues as the Getty Museum in Los Angeles, Carnegie Hall in New York, the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC. Nominated for both a GRAMMY® and a Latin GRAMMY® they have participated in a large number of cross-cultural projects with classical, Irish, blues, C&W, jazz, and rock musicians through collaborations with artists across many genres.

Performing with Sones will be the Mexican Folkloric Dance Company of Chicago. As Chicago's oldest Mexican dance institution, MFDC has received countless recognitions and awards, has performed for three presidents and represented Mexico in the 1994 USA World Cup opening ceremony, as well as numerous national television performances and prestigious venues and festivals
