Relax with Latin Sounds every Saturday from May through September at the Dorothy Collins Brown Amphitheater in Hancock Park (the park, not the neighborhood, at LACMA, just north of the museum) as world-renowned artists play the hottest sounds from Brazil, Argentina, Peru, Mexico, Cuba, and Los Angeles. This week is Cesar Castro.
Multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Cesar Castro is one of the world’s leading musicians specializing in son jarocho, a blend of indigenous Mexican, African, and Arabic sounds that originated in Veracruz, Mexico. Mr. Castro began training in son jarocho at the age of eleven, joining the pioneering group Mono Blanco at the age of fifteen. After moving to Los Angeles, Mr. Castro joined Quetzal, one of the premier Chicano fusion bands.
