La Tuza

La Tuza

Performance Date and Time : 
Saturday, July 19 1:00 PM

La Tuza is the only Mexican roots band in Boston, and one of just a handful on the East Coast. “Son” originated in Central Mexico, and is a fusion of Spanish, African, and indigenous music. La Tuza specializes in the African-influenced “son jarocho” of Veracruz, the swinging “son calentano” of the Mexican Hotlands, and the fiery “son huasteco” of the Huasteca region. The all-acoustic instrumentation includes jaranas, guitar, violin, cajon, pandeiro, tamborita, and a donkey jawbone!
