Bring Cambalache to PHX for our Dia De Los Muertos Festival October 25th!

The Cultural Coalition is proud to partner with the Son Jorocho Collective of Arizona to present the musical group “Cambalache” to perform at the Annual Dia de Los Muertos PHX Festival on 10/25/2015.  The festival is free and open to the public.   Your donation will help with the artistic fees for Cambalache!

“Cambalache” offers the traditional music of Veracruz, Mexico, providing an interactive performance where the audiences & participants learn about the profound history, dance & unique native instruments.
The energetic sounds of Veracruz will spice up the Dia de Los Muertos Festival/PHX as Cambalache takes the entertainment stage during the celebration, scheduled 1 to 6 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 25 at Steele Indian School Park, 300 E. Indian School Road, Phoenix.

Cambalache (“exchange”), is a Chicano-Jarocho group. Ardent practitioners of the lively son jarocho sound (found originally in Mexico’s southern state of Veracruz), members of Cambalache are part of the vibrant  folklorico music scene. The musicians often can be heard at Latino fandangos (community dances), performances and workshops.Son is an Afro-Indigenous and Spanish fusion of melodies, phrasings and fast rhythms, also known as música de cuerda (string music). It is considered by anthro-musicologists to be the first true, original form of America music.

We are particularly excited to help bring “Cambalache” and to continue this vibrant tradition while connecting communities and highlighting our humanities through discussions & the learning of our history and connecting Arizonans to other cultures.
