Double Nominee at the 2020 Independent Music Awards and winner of the 2015 Mexican Music Award for Best Contemporary Folk Band, this 10-piece band incorporates music and dance into its vibrant live performances. Jarana Beat blends Mexican folk and Afro-Amerindian musical traditions with the percussive footwork of dancers to create an irresistibly spirited and uplifting cross-cultural sound. Led by composer/producer Sinuhé Padilla-Isunza, the band gathers professional performers from Mexico, in collaboration with artists from all over the world, drawing on elements of traditional instrumentation and percussive footwork from styles such as Son Jarocho, Son Guerrerense, and Son Huasteco, taking New York's (and the world's!) scene on a journey through Afro-Amerindian culture. “The combination of Mexico-New York that is Jarana Beat, entwines intricate, delicate rhythms punctuated with rich voices of longing, with a wonderful and surprisingly jovial effect. The group includes dancers, who use their zapateado and blows as percussion, and you will hear Native-American, Gypsy, and Afro-Mexican elements in their music. A great product. ” – Critic’s Pick, Time Out New York.
