Caña Dulce & Caña Brava



BOMBYX Center for Arts & Equity (130 Pine Street, Florence MA)

A feminine take on the traditional music of Veracruz and an authentic Mexican dinner from Masa Mexicano of Florence

The concert portion of this special BOMBYX Show & Dinner event is by donation. Tickets for the dinner are $25 and limited to 60.

Highlighting feminine poetry and voices, Caña Dulce y Caña Brava play Son jarocho, a style of folk music that originated in Veracruz, Mexico. They use traditional string instruments and perform poetic improvisation in rhyme from a woman’s perspective. Explosions of color, textures and images unite the traditional with the contemporary. Since its formation in 2007, the group has carried the seal of feminine strength and beauty within the traditionally masculine world of Mexican son, a style of Mexican folk music and dance that encompasses various regional genres.
