Studio Grand and Lolis García are pleased to bring you Sones en el Olvido, a month long series of Son Jarocho Zapteado and Jarana classes along with an opening and closing fandango.  

Sones en el Olvido will bring a Son Jarocho master from Veracruz, Mx., to collaborate with García to provide free classes for children, youth, and adults in the music and dance tradition of Son Jarocho. Through the jarana and zapateado classes, they will share and teach a group of “lost” sones or sones that have been less popular or forgotten over the past years.  

With the support of the Akonadi Foundation's Beloved Community Fund, we are able to present events and classes free to the public! We are so pleased to present these classes and performances here in Oakland. Please join us and take note of the youth and adult class schedule below.
