Son jarocho is the traditional dance and music from southern Veracruz, Mexico. The genre has its roots in Spanish music and a mixture of Afro-Caribbean and Mexican sounds.

The fandango is a community celebration accompanied with son jarocho. The tarima (a wooden dance platform) is the center of a party that involves musicians, poets, and dancers. Traditional songs played at fandangos include la bamba, el cascabel, la morena, el zapateado, el aguanieve, el siquisiri.
