Cascada de Flores will perform Son Jarocho in People Like Me 2006, based on the story of the region and the combinations of cultures that came together to give rise to this dance and music style. With percussive footwork reminiscent of the Spanish roots, call and response song styles from the African heritage, and animal imagery hailing from the Indigenous peoples of the region, the intersection of cultural expression in this piece brings the beauty of Veracruz to life.
