Son del Centro y El Pinche Simón: El Enemigo Común in Santa Ana

by ~Bradley Monday, Feb. 27, 2006 at 12:36 AM
bradley@riseup.net

On February 18th, about 50 people came out to El Centro Cultural de México in Santa Ana to hear Son del Centro perform son jarocho music and see a premier screening of El Enemigo Común.

mp3 link above is Simon Sedillo speaking in spanish and english about El Enemigo Común. (12:04 minutes / 5.6 MB)


El Enemigo Común

Directed by Simon Sedillo, El Enemigo Común scratches beneath the surface of neoliberalism, and looks at some of the most hidden atrocities in recent North American history. The film documents instances of paramilitary activity against indigenous communities in Oaxaca, Mexico from 2002 through 2005, and includes footage of protests in Cancun against the World Trade Organization, and in Miami against the Free Trade Area of the America's. The three locations in isolation expose the disparities in North American resistance movements, but also bring us closer to understanding the nature of an emerging common struggle.

Son del Centro got the evening started by performing son jarocho music.

Son del Centro is a group of companeros and camaradas who are students, musicians, activists, dancers, friends and organizers from various parts of Santa Ana, California. The group was formed to create a space for youth to explore their traditions, creativity and consciousness, through son jarocho music. Inspired by the Jarocho groups from Mexico brought to Southern California by El Centro Cultural, this group of youth began attending son jarocho classes about three years ago, and fell in love with the music.


Por medio de los talleres de son jarocho que se ofrecen en el Centro Cultural de México en Santa Ana, California, se formo el grupo de Son del Centro quienes son compañeros y camaradas, estudiantes, músicos, activistas, bailadores, amigos y organizadores de varios partes de Santa Ana, California, y ciudades cercanas. Por mas de tres años el grupo ha servido como pilar económico para este espacio cultural. Cuando invitados a tocar para diferentes eventos, el dinero recaudado se le entrega directamente al espacio para cubrir sus gastos. Además han participado solidariamente con diferentes campañas socio-políticas como la Coalición de Trabajadores Immokalee (CIW), promoviendo la música jarocha como un herramienta movilizadora. En si el grupo presenta y promueve el son jarocho a varias comunidades y crea un espacio en donde los jóvenes de la comunidad pueda explorar sus tradiciones, creatividad y consciencia dentro del son jarocho.


Below are a couple of songs which Son del Centro recorded live on KPFK.
