"Son jarocho blends indigenous, Spanish and African musical elements and sounds using the small guitar-like instruments the jarana and the requinto as welll as percussions from the pandero, the quijada, or the guiro.

Andres Flores is a renowned master of the jarana and pandero, and also of traditional Veracruz folk dance, and he shares his mastery with other by teaching dance workshops and jarana lessons on Youtube.

Andres Flores represents a strong mastery of traditional son jarocho, but also works with fusion projects to blend the son jarocho style in new and exciting ways. He was part of the Piano Xarocho project that blends son jarocho with the regional music from the plains of Venezuela and Colombia. His most recent project is Sistema Bomb which son jarocho with electronic music. The project aims to conserve the jarocho traditional music by partnering musicians from bay area bands with talented traditional son jarocho musicians. Sistema Bomb producers aim to conserve the jarocho tradition by partnering musicians from various bay area bands with talented traditional son jarocho musicians to create an upbeat electronic dance sound paired with traditional jarocho rythyms."
