Midwestern readers, there is some good son jarocho in Chicago next week that you should see, several shows actually, stretching into the first week of November.
And for those of you away from God's Midwestern Acreage, you might be interested to know that this concert info leds me to discover ArteSalazar, a maker of reasonably priced custommade jaranas in Chicago.
Actually, assuming they are decently made, more than reasonably priced it seems to me, for handmade instruments. Hmmm.
I just missed my chance to send someone to check them out this past weekend when they held a demo on making jaranas, but there are sure to be future times.
