Synopsis

Album Description
The region that is now the Mexican state of Veracruz gives us the intricate string band music of the conjuntos jaroches, featuring a diatonic harp, a small four-string guitar known as the requinto and one or two jaranas -- a thin-bodied guitar with eight strings. Singing is also a much-prized skill. Heritage Award Winners Los Pregoneros del Puerto formed as a professional group in 1964, and the members of the current group (which includes two founders) are counted among the best of the jarocho musicians heard today.
