Folklives #8: José Gutiérrez
Monday, Nov 12, 2007

Graceful, rhythmic, and celebratory, the music of Mexico's gulf coast is the focus of this week's podcast. Pregonero (vocalist) and arpa player José Gutiérrez, a native of Veracruz, presents a traditional son jarocho, a song heard at local dance parties called fandangos in Veracruz.

José was a guest at the 1985 Northwest Folklife Festival, where he gave this outstanding performance. A resident of the Pacific Northwest during the 1980s, Jose now lives and performs in Veracruz, Mexico.
