Sunday, February 19 - We went with friends Jane and Joe to Juarez-Lincoln High School's presentation "Grupo Folkdorico "Sol Azteca" Mariachi and Conjunto "Sol"", dances that emphasize local folk culture. This high school is located in the La Joya Independent School District. This was an awesome show. The kids are 9-12th graders. The entire show lasted two and a half hours but flew by. The dancers, singers and musicians were all super!
Here is a little example of what these kids can do.
Flamenco music and dance of the Andlusian Gypsies.
In between each dance segment, the Mariachi "Sol" group played. What talented singers and players.
There is a great influence of African, native American and European backgrounds.
Veracruz- La Bailadora
Dance of the Quincenera.
Another type of Mariachi band.
Colorful costumes and cowboy yelps reign in this traditional folk music.
