"Toro zacamandú (The Zacamandú Bull)" by Grupo Mono Blanco

Official music video for “Toro zacamandú (The Zacamandú Bull)” by Grupo Mono Blanco, from ¡Fandango! Sones Jarochos from Veracruz. This hard-driving son features Gisela Farías's clarion voice and rural, declamatory singing style and the percussive sounds of zapateado footwark by Iván Fernández and his sister Lucero Fernández.

“Hey, hey, let's herd all the cattle,
for the rains are coming.
Hey, hey, the lowlands are flooding,
and the highlands are going away.”
