Sones de México
Since 1994, Sones de México, a Mexican folk music group, has specialized in and promoted Mexican folk music and artistic styles, such as huapango, gustos, chilenas, son jarocho, and more. Soon after, the group became a non-profit organization to preserve the tradition of Mexican “son” in its various regional forms.
The team is committed to teaching. The ensemble members reach out to young and old with many of their educational programs nationwide.
