Mexican traditional music encompasses a large mosaic of styles and genres. From that musical palette emerges the son huasteco, also known as huapango, a traditional music from the eastern region of Mexico known as the Huasteca.
Since the last century, son huasteco’s influence has impacted other musical domains outside its own tradition. Examples of this influence can be seen in a number of works by Mexican nationalist composers, contemporary composers, and in the popular music scene with bands of all kind of genres.
This paper focuses on specific works that use son huasteco as their main source of material and, as well, on some musical groups that have integrated elements of it. Moreover, it explores the process behind my piece Imágenes Huastecas, for chamber orchestra, which includes different ways of incorporating son huasteco in a new piece of music.
