NYC’s Radio Jarocho and master Zenen Zeferino have joined forces on ‘Rios de Norte y Sur,’ an album of son jarocho music out May 11. They’ll play together at an album release show at Joe’s Pub on May 10. (A combination of Spanish, Afro-Caribbean, and Mexican indigenous music, the rowdy, upbeat son jarocho is customarily played in the fandango, a community celebration where people gather to play, sing, and dance.)

“Ríos de Norte y Sur” features a mix of traditional son jarocho tunes and new songs by Zenen Zeferino. All the tracks in ways speak to the band's experience as immigrants in the US and to the nostalgia and love they have for our roots and origins. They speak about the bodies of water that unite New York and Veracruz, and that know no borders, walls or frontiers.

NPR has praised Radio Jarocho’s “edgy attitude.” The New York Daily News’ Jim Farber said, “This New York-based band mine flinty traditional Mexican jarocho music, then fracture it through a modern sensibility of their own.”
