Veracruz: Steps







Veracruz is one of the most popular regions due to the elegance of its customs and the rhythm of its music. The "sones" of Veracruz are played with a "marimba", bass, harp, and a small guitar called "jarango". Both women and men wear white customs with a red "reboso" for women and red tie for men. The origin of the music "sones" comes from a combination of Spanish, Caribbean, and Mexican ethnic groups. The dances  have a medium to advanced level of complexity in the footwork. In addition, many times, women have to have great balancing skills as they have to wear a glass of water or a candle on the top of their heads while they dance.
