in Spanish and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Video recording, sound recording, and photographs of a concert in the Coolidge Auditorium, Thomas Jefferson Building, Library of Congress on September 28, 2016 as part of the Homegrown concert series sponsored by the American Folklife Center. National Endowment for the Arts National Heritage Fellow and 2016 Bess Lomas Hawes award recipient Artemio Posadas is a musician, dancer, teacher, and tireless cultural organizer. He was awarded this year's Bess Lomax Hawes National Heritage Fellow for his commitment to the Mexican tradition of son huasteco. The son of a traditional violinist, he was born in 1948 and raised in the northeastern Mexican state of San Luis Potosí, in the cultural region known as La Huasteca. As a youth, Posadas became fascinated with the region's music known as son huasteco, with its singing style embellished with falsetto breaks and a rich practice of poetic, instrumental, and dance improvisation. He learned the music's three instruments -- huapanguera (large rhythm guitar), jarana (small guitar), and violin -- as well as traditional repertoire and dance style. He resettled in the Bay Area in 1979 and later became a United States citizen. In northern California, he performed with local musicians and since 1990 has taught the son huasteco (along with the son jarocho and other regional forms of son) at Richmond's East Bay Center for the Performing Arts. In this concert, the first 9 songs performed are sones huastecos, the last 5 songs are sones mariacheros
