Mini Concierto: Son Monarcas

The National Museum of Mexican Art is proud to present the Mini Concierto Series. Join us on Facebook or YouTube Live for a virtual series of concerts from the comfort of your own home. The series of at-home concerts features both emerging and established artists, as well local and international artists.  

We’re pleased to present Son Monarcas, a Latin Folk Fusion ensemble led by Mercedes Inez Martinez and Irekani Ferreyra. Like that of the Monarch Butterfly, they take you on a musical migration from the USA to Latin America by fusing indie soul with traditional son & cumbia. Son Monarcas is comprised of musicians who are well-versed in the Afro-Mestizo genres of folk music from Latin America. They blend the traditional with the contemporary by creating original arrangements of "son" while retaining the foundation of the traditional style. Their original compositions include influences of Cumbia, Samba, Jazz and Experimental music in English and Spanish. See the concert on Facebook or YouTube Live.
