The Public Library is very excited to bring Maria y Yahví to Silver City on Friday, February 5th at 6 pm for a free evening concert. Maria y Yahví joyfully share music from various Mexican music traditions including music from the U.S./Mexico border, Son Jarocho (Veracruz), and Son Calentano (Michoacan/Guerrero). They are both multi-instrumentalists and vocalists and taught at the world-renowned Old Town School of Folk Music before moving to Las Cruces. They recently opened a new school called Carambola Community Music in El Paso where they get to share their love of music by teaching to both children and adults. These players have deep roots and connections to the music and instruments they will be sharing with you. They have traveled to Mexico for the past ten years studying with master musicians. Their instrumentation includes fiddle, guitar, jarana, voice, percussion and marimbol. To learn more about Maria y Yahví, visit their website at http://mariayahvi.com/
