Radio Jarocho is a group of young musicians of Mexican origin, that is based in the East Coast of the United Sates. Their mission is to preserve the rich son jarocho tradition of Mexico. The band’s latest album just came out and it’s titled Café Café.

Son jarocho is the traditional dance and music from southern Veracruz, Mexico. The genre has its roots in Spanish music and contains a mix of Afro-Caribbean and Mexican elements.

Café Café preserves the fine tradition of son jarocho thanks to a group of young talented musicians.
