Presented by Tierra Caliente Academy in partnership with California Center for the Arts, Escondido.
As “Abuelita” would say, “to know where you are going you have to know where you come from”.
Act I: From the Fandango Jarocho to the Carnaval in Sinaloa. Introducing to the stage the Evolution of the Son Jarocho, with dances portraying Spanish, African and Mestizo influence. We then take the stage to Sinaloa, introducing the carnaval queen, some Charleston influence that reached the region and more…
Through the magic of the theater and dance, we journey to the Northern part of Mexico to the news of the rise for the Land and Liberty – The Mexican Revolution. But to the Revolution there was a before, during and after. Introducing the contrast of the Aristocratic dances to the polkas of the revolution. A mixture of emotions played on stage as in the face of tragedy we still find the time to gather and dance.
As the journey continues with the music and traditions of yesterday, we cultivate identity today and for the generations to come.
Support the Cultural Arts as we work towards the credibility and evolution of the representation of our Folklore in North County San Diego. The Cultural Arts are the Heart of our community and we hope to have the community present.
