Description

Strongly influenced by the Afro Caribbean  rhythms from Veracruz, Mexico, Un Zapateado Chicano  explores  Gema Sandoval’s Chicano voice in dance.  In direct opposition to the very symmetrical sounds of traditional Mexican folk music,  the syncopated sounds of Veracruz provide the inspiration for the rhythms that Floricanto explores in this two hour production  where dancers become part of the music by establishing percussive dialogues  with  musicians and, together, explore the connections that exist in the rhythms of our global cultures.
