Fandango de Durham
The Fandango de Durham is a two-day community festival organized by Sophia Enriquez and Alexandra Landeros to bring the culture of son jarocho--traditional folk music and dance from Veracruz, Mexico--to North Carolina. In September of 2022, the first Fandango de Durham took place in Durham and featured Los Utrera, a leading family band of son jarocho music.
The first day of the festival included a concert and mini market featuring Los Utrera and local NC duo Larry&Joe at the Fruit Produce Company. The second day featured a community workshop and fandango at the Durham Bottling Company.
