|Trio Caimanes brings to MECA the music of La Huasteca, a geographical and cultural region located partially along the Gulf of Mexico and including parts of the states of Tamaulipas, Veracruz, Puebla, Hidalgo, San Luis Potosí, Querétaro, and Guanajuato. This traditional Mexican musical style dates back to the end of the 19th century and is influenced by Spanish and indigenous cultures.
A trio Huasteco is comprised of a jarana (a guitar-like chordophone with 5 strings, tuned in thirds, low to high), a violin, and a guitarra quinta huapanguera (a five course, eight stringed guitar-like instrument).
Special guest appearance by the MECA Ballet Folklorico.
Trio Caimanes is funded in part by the City of Houston through Houston Arts Alliance.
