Cambalache, meaning “exchange,” is a Chicano-Jarocho group based in East Los Angeles. Founded in 2007 and led by César Castro, a sonero, maestro and luthier from Veracruz, Mexico, Cambalache plays and promotes traditional son jarocho through performance, music workshops, and educational demonstrations. In the spirit of the fandango, a traditional celebration of music and dance, Cambalache engages its audience through participatory performances.
The music of Cambalache was featured on NPR's All Things Considered stating, “Son Jarocho has been popular in Los Angeles, going back to the 1950s with Ritchie Valens, then Los Lobos. Today, it's a part of the regular soundtrack of Latino music in East L.A.”
This concert is part of the Second Encuentro de Jaraneros of the Midwest.
