Sones De Mexico
The group is Chicago’s premier folk music ensemble specializing in Mexican "son," including the regional styles of huapango, gustos, chilenas, and son jarocho, among others.
The group formed in 1994 to keep the tradition of Mexican ‘son’ alive in its many regional forms. As a performer and recording artist, the ensemble has developed and popularized many original arrangements of Mexican traditional tunes touring mostly in the Midwest, East Coast and Southern U.S. Some of its original work has experimented cross-culturally with symphonic, Irish, folk, C&W, jazz, and rock music, though never abandoning its roots in Mexican son.
Also a 501 not-for-profit organization, the ensemble is committed to teaching. The ensemble members reach out to young and old with many of their educational programs nationwide.
The group consists of Victor Pichardo, Juan Dies, Zacbé Pichardo, Lorena Iñiguez, Javier Saume-Mazzei, and Juan Rivera.
