Concert Series – Part 3
Updating and reinvigorating the lively son jarocho of Veracruz, Mexico, Los Angeles-based Conjunto Jardín (cone-HOON-toe har-DEEN) features sisters Libby and Cindy Harding Their sibling vocals ride atop hard-charging jaranas, driving cajón-and-bass rhythm section and sparkling harp-like keyboards to create a fresh, modern sound that is at once faithfully traditional, yet at the same time possessed of a rock-influenced drive and accessible edge. The group was nominated for Best Latin/Salsa Artist in the 2003 L.A. Weekly Music Awards, and is the recipient of an L.A. Treasures Award from the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs.
“Conjunto Jardin… is built around the convincing, traditional-styles singing and playing of sisters Libby and Cindy Harding. Their music… was almost instantly captivating, generating dancing in the aisles… It was a superb example of the manner in which traditional music and dance continue to have the power to reach out and gather in new, receptive audiences.”
– Don Heckman, Los Angeles Times
