This is an Oxford Studies event.Play trailer.Fandango at the Wall follows Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra founder/conductor Arturo O'Farrill to the remotest regions of Veracruz, Mexico, where he meets and jams with the masters of son jarocho. Son jarocho is 300-year-old folk music rooted in the land that combines Indigenous, Spanish, and African traditions. After O'Farrill's inspiring journey, he and his orchestra join the masters of son jarocho at the border between the United States and Mexico for a music and dance festival called Fandango Fronterizo (founded by Jorge Francisco Castillo).The festival takes place simultaneously on both sides of the United States-Mexico border transforming this object that divides to one that unites. With a poetic musical approach inspired by the son jarocho tradition, Fandango at the Wall reveals a Mexico seldom depicted. The story reveals a culturally rich portrait of Mexico and Mexicans and presents US-Mexico relations in a positive light, showing how art and culture can bring our countries and people together.Content will go live on November 2 at 7:30 p.m. EST.
