“Tres Ríos” is a Mexican ensemble that plays Son Jarocho, a genre from the Sotavento, region in the state of Veracruz. The band is a product of the cultural mix between Mexican indigenous, African and Spanish people during the colonial times. Therefore, the name “Tres Ríos” (Three Rivers in Spanish) attempts to portrait this triple influence.
The music is powerful, joyful, nostalgic but also festively. It sings about nature, love and daily life. Within the repertoire boleros and original compositions influenced by jazz are also included.
