La Peña Cultural Center and Brava Theater join forces to present a one-of-a-kind music and dance concert exploring the contributions of women in Mexican folklore!

  • Photo above: Maria de la Rosa.

Las Peteneras is the final installment of a four-part concert series, developed at La Peña Cultural Center, examining the role of women in traditional folk music and dance from Latin America and the Caribbean.

Las Peteneras is a provocative and enchanting 12 song-cycle, primarily in the Son styles of Veracruz, Mexico, daring women to rise above traditional roles.

 

Amazing show photos!

 

 

It is said the spirit of these songs evoke powerful energy calling women to step above cultural limitations and question our understanding of the female presence in Mexican folkloric music and dance traditions.

Sones such as “La Petenera” weave a story that is a reflection on the timeless feminine embedded in our collective experience– a shared memory that reaches past the limitations of our corporal beings and geographical borders all the way to our ancient past and back to our rooted present.

Las Peteneras opens with an enchanting call from the sirens to explore ancient voices, evoke our primal reaction to “cante hondo”, the song that is deep within us. The melodic harmonies invite us to question our understanding of the female presence in Mexican folkloric music and dance traditions.

For this culminating event, La Peña and Brava join forces to present a one-of-a-kind music and dance concert featuring a cast of primarily Bay Area female artists, son jarocho musicians and cultural leaders including:
