“Mexico-via-Brooklyn combo Jarana Beat weaves intricate rhythms and delicate plucks with rich, yearning vocals to gorgeous and surprisingly jolly effect. Great stuff.”
—Time Out New York

Winner of the 2015 Mexican Music Award for Best Contemporary Folk Band, this 11-piece band incorporates music, dance, and activism into its vibrant live performances. Jarana Beat blends Mexican folk and Afro-Amerindian musical traditions with the percussive footwork of dancers performing in traditional costumes to create an irresistibly spirited and uplifting cross-cultural sound.
