The Jaranera Orchestra from Mérida performed a show in front of 550 Yucatecans in the city of San Rafael, California, USA. It was a great success; the public danced to the rhythm of the traditional jarana, and are eagerly awaiting for the remaining perfomances set to conclude July 23.
With part of its extensive musical repertoire, the Jaranera Orchestra headed the esplanade at the Pickleweed Library in San Rafael (a place frequented by Yucatecans), where a few spontaneous dancers joined the party. Likewise, the gathering included one of the most representative dishes of the state: tacos de cochinita pibil and horchata, which were served by the Yucatecan chef Santos Tuyub.
The performance given by the Jaranera Orchestra is part of the activities that the City Council is aiming to strengthen cultural identity and ties between the Yucatecans living in the United States and their homeland. The migrants themselves made a petition to Mérida’s mayor, Mauricio Vila Dosal, to come and perform this traditional event in the United States.
Furthermore, last Tuesday’s performance was the first of the orchestra’s July 18-23 tour, which will also include Los Angeles, California; the groups also received an invitation from the Mexican consulate in San Francisco, California, and the Northern California Federation of Clubs Yucatecos.
