Después de 12 años de trabajo de campo en la capital del mundo y cinco de grabación, La propuesta de Jarana Beat hoy a llegado a un punto único y Maduro y nos presentan su última producción que lleva como nombre “Vibración por Simpatía”, bajo la dirección musical y artística de Sinuhé Padilla Isunza. Este documento sonoro es un precedente de cómo se reencuentran las raíces indígenas, andaluzas y del oeste africano, a través de los folklores primos que conviven y se recrean en la gran manzana con un sonido de culturas milenarias a principios de un nuevo milenio.

After 12 years of field work and investigation and 5 years of recording in the capital of the world, Jarana Beat's proposal has achieved a unique and mature state. They present to us a their latest musical production “Vibración por Simpatía” (Vibrations by Sympathy) under the musical and artistic direction of Sinuhé Padilla Isunza. This sonorous document tells the story of how, through relative folklores, the indigenous roots encountered the Spanish roots, and the west African. Distant cousins that coexist and recreate themselves in the big apple from a millenary culture and now about to begin a new millenium.

Este álbum de tres Movimientos más que un disco de una banda, es un documento sonoro que cuenta a manera de soundtrack siete años de la historia de Jarana Beat y sus integrantes en diversas épocas. Narra también los primeros siete Encuentros de Jaraneros en Nueva York, en el que importantes exponentes del Son Jarocho participaron y dejaron un pedacito de su historia en canciones.

​"Siete años del sonido con el que se vive y recrea hoy la música afroamerindia de México y Latinoamérica en la ciudad de Nueva York" Sinuhé Padilla.

​Así, “Vibración Por Simpatía” es un minucioso compilado de 55 artistas unidos en una sinfonía/fandango que expresa los sonidos de un México universal y ancestral, así como sus relaciones con los folklores primos de diversos países que históricamente compartieron las mismas raíces e influencias culturales y que hoy se vuelven a encontrar en una nueva escena global y cosmopolita.

This three-part album, more than a record, is a sound document that tells in the form of a soundtrack seven years of the history of Jarana Beat and its members. It also narrates the first seven “Encuentro de Jaraneros of New York”, in which important representatives of Son Jarocho participated and left a bit of their story in songs.

"Seven years of the sound with which the Afro-American music of Mexico and Latin America have found themselves and have been recreated in New York City" Sinuhé Padilla.

 

Thus, “Vibración Por Sympathy” is a meticulous compilation of 55 artists united in a symphony/fandango that expresses the sounds of a universal and ancestral Mexico, as well as their relationships with other relative folk music of different countries that have historically shared the same roots and cultural influences and that today meet again in a new global and cosmopolitan scene.
