México Lindo

Project type



Valencia, CA

'México Lindo' brings the huapango, a Mexican folkloric music and dance genre from the Huasteca region, into an orchestral context. The word huapango comes from Náhuatl, the second most spoken language in México and one of the 68 indigenous languages still spoken today; it translates to "on top of the wood" due to the fact that the zapateado is danced over a wooden platform called tarima.

Composed and conducted by Pablo Leñero Archer. Harp part edited by Leila Jay Bishop. Performed with the California Institute of the Arts Ensemble, directed by Nick Deyoe.
