In conjunction with the 3rd annual Huapango Sin Fronteras Festival, Texas Folklife welcomes the female huasteco trio Las Palomitas Serranas. The trio will perform son huasteco - one of Mexico's most distinctive and uplifting folk music traditions. Son Huasteco is marked by florid poetry, soaring high falsetto vocals, and ornate and elaborate violin improvisations. Notre Dame professor and festival co-organizer Alex Chávez will lecture briefly on this Mexican folk and dance tradition, lending insight into its long history, practice and performance genres, and growing presence in the U.S.

Austin-based huapango arribeño trovador (poet-practitioner), festival founder and co-organizer Raul Orduña will also be on hand to answer questions about the festival.

Limited number of tickets available!

Bring your own lawn chair!
