October 28, at 3:00 pm$20 - $30
Along with their traditional costumes and instruments, a concert with Tlen-Huicani is like taking a journey of Mexico’s
Beautiful “harpa jarocha” or folk harp, the centerpiece of their music. Since 1973, their music and international achievements have earned the honor of ‘Best Folk Group in Mexico’ by the Union of Music and Theater Critics. In 2008, the governor of Veracruz honored them for the 35 years of service to the development of the cultural landscape of Veracruz.
Nearing their fourth decade, Tlen-Huicani remains one of the most faithful interpreters of the traditional folk music of Veracruz, Mexico and Latin America. Their expertise earned them an appearance at the 2007 San Jose Mariachi Festival, performing alongside some of the biggest names in the genre including: Linda Ronstadt and Los Lobos.
