Nearly 30 presentations, three conversations and five musical presentations will be presented at the International Forum of Traditional Music, within the 34th International Anthropology and History Book Fair, which will open today and close next Sunday, at the National Museum of Anthropology.

This forum was born 19 years ago and aims to attract not only academics and researchers, but also the bearers of traditions, that is, musicians, dancers, composers and performers, from son huasteco and jarana to northern music. , of the hot land and the isthmus of Tehuantepec,” he told Excelsior Benjamín Muratalla, coordinator of the meeting.

He explained that it is a broad forum in which the presence of the public will be relevant, "because this type of music - despite the fact that it is very connected to the historical and cultural roots of all these peoples and that they are the heritage and foundation of our country as a diverse and multicultural nation—are relegated, hidden and almost not heard,” Muratalla lamented.

And the reason why this happens, he said, "is because sometimes these sounds are considered to be the music of Indians, peasants or poor people and what it generates is a confusing idea, so this forum is a showcase."

The forum will open today at 11:00 a.m. with the presentation of awards to musicians of the Yaqui culture and will continue with the tables that will address topics such as the sound of the Yaqui territory, the artistic and musical map of the indigenous peoples of Sonora, among others. .
