Hailing from Veracruz, in southern Mexico, Grupo Mono Blaco has been playing the traditional jarocho music of that region since 1978, as well as being involved in the revitalization of traditional culture, including dances and instrument making. This sunny selection is typical of the band's output, which is strongly reminiscent of Peruvian music with an additional percussive beat.
