New York Folklore presents Pulso De Barro
March 3 at 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm
New York Folklore presents a free, multi-part showcase of New York’s diverse folk music traditions.
Mexican American musicians Maria Puente Flores, Mateo Cano, Víctor Lizabeth, Oviedo Horta Jr, and Adriana Pericchi, explore the tradition of Son Jarocho as Pulso De Barro. The musicians draw on their varied heritages (Mexican, Cuban, Venezuelan and Puerto Rican) to create Pulso De Barro. Members play Jarana and Leona (stringed instruments), quijada, cajon, maracas, and marimba (percussive instruments), dance on the Tarima (percussive platform) and sing folk and original compositions called Versadas. Pulso de Barro merges poetry and music as ways of coexisting reciprocally with nature.
