La cultura musical del sur de Veracruz está vinculada a la religión. Las personas que viven lejos de la urbanidad, miran a través de los rituales religiosos una forma de vincular a la comunidad. Los santos, son como cualquier otro miembro de la sociedad, los celebran con esta fiesta llamada "Huapango" o “Fandango". La cual antes, era el único entretenimiento disponible. Esto fue ya hace muchas lunas.                       

A través de este proyecto en curso, estoy en la búsqueda de mostrar el aspecto sensorial que rodea esta música. Los sincretismos que existen, el ritual y la religión. Pero también la vida cotidiana de estos lugares rurales, que aún mantienen sus usos y costumbres, a pesar del cambio social y la modernidad.                                                        
    
In the magical and mystical region of Los Tuxtlas, in Veracruz, Mexico, there is an inclusive celebration known as "Huapango", which is surrounded by music, where sometimes there’s mystery and syncretisms involved. Everything take place between mountains, cobbled roads, coils and the dense jungle.

The traditional music of the southern veracruz Is linked to religion due to people that look through rituals as a way to link the community with these spiritual part. The saints, are like any other society member, and celebrate them with this festival called "huapango" or "fandango", which before the modernity arrival, was the only entertainment available. This was many moons ago.

Through this ongoing project, I am looking to show the sensory aspect or the feeling that surrounds this music. The syncretisms that exist, but also the daily life of these rural places, which still have their strong roots.

I’m still getting into the notes of this music; the same music that comes from the soul, that is sincere, that comes from centuries and in the end, I’m rediscovering more mysteries that surround her, and just a little bit more of my identity from this magical place: “Los Tuxtlas”.
