Chapulines plays an idiosyncratic interpretation of son jarocho, a traditional music genre from the south of the state of Veracruz, Mexico. Son jarocho originated in the colonial period when indigenous, Spanish, African and Arabic musical traditions mixed. Chapulines is inspired by rhythms and sounds from the Caribbean, including Cuba and Colombia. You can hear these influences in their own compositions, which they alternate with songs from the traditional repertoire.
