La presumida takes the stage, her hands poised as if to touch the air delicately. She takes us to the town of San Lorenzo in Tamaulipas where couples wind and spin to the sounds of northeast Mexico. There, el bejuquito talks to us of love without limitations and to never underestimate the underdog.
La “huasteca” region encompasses several northeastern and central Mexican states. Music is characterized by the trio of musicians who, with bright falsettos and intricate melodies, accompany dancers in stories of love, courtship, and humor. The instruments for this region are the violin, jarana huasteca, and the quinta huapanguera.
