TARIMBA is a collective of local Bay Area musicians who have embraced the traditional genre of Son Jarocho music. The core members of TARIMBA are experienced multi-instrumentalists and vocalists who are dedicated to son jarocho’s community-building ethos, playful lyrics, and improvisational sensibility.
Tarimba is another word for ‘tarima’, the wooden dance platform that serves as the heart of the Son Jarocho tradition of the Sotavento region of Mexico (comprising Southern Veracruz and parts of Northern Oaxaca and Tabasco). Son Jarocho reflects its Spanish, Arabic, African, Caribbean and Indigenous influences, and is played at community celebrations called Fandangos.

The core members of Cascada de Flores have been re-imagining Mexican tradition for years. After falling for Mexican music as a young woman, Arwen Lawrence toured with Grammy-winning L.A. mariachi heavyweights, Los Camperos de Nati Cano, an apprenticeship that honed her skills and deepened her love for Mexico’s musical language. With them, she recorded and performed in venues such as the Teatro Degollado in Guadalajara and Lincoln Center of New York. Nati always nudged her towards what she already did naturally: to sing with heart. Cascada de Flores has recorded now four albums, collaborated in numerous projects, including theater and cinema and toured to several areas of the United States. Opening minds and hearts to the real stories of Mexico and Latin America has become this group’s unofficial mission; Jorge feels pride at being able to arrive at a performance without a wide sombrero and still be received with open arms.
