¡Fandango! With Los Cambalache
Los Cambalache (meaning ‘the exchange’ in Spanish) is a son jarocho group from East Los Angeles and they play a style of music which originated on the gulf coast of Mexico. The music they play inspires the audience to participate in the spirit of the fandango. Led by Cesar Castro, Los Cambalache invite us to participate in the fandango cultural tradition and practice.
This show is about sharing, teaching, learning and building a community together through participatory practices in music, dance, verse and in the art of “being together.” In this community celebration, full participation of everyone present is encouraged as the most important element of a fandango is not how well someone plays their instrument, but that everyone is included.
