In the past several years, son jarocho, the Mexican musical style from Veracruz, has experienced a resurgence in popularity and especially so in the Bay Area. Merging indigenous, Spanish and African elements the folkloric cultural form includes dancers performing percussive footwork atop a wooden box, stringed jaranas, and the striking jawbone of a donkey or horse played as an instrument.
