One of the moments that I fell in love with this community [in Veracruz] is when I went to the Seminario of Son Jarocho that they give once a year in Luna Negra, and there is a moment where many people from the community of Jaraneros come to this area. And they get together, they make fandangos, they make music all day and all night. It's a beautiful thing. And for me, to see all these young people loving so much of this music, it gave me hope for how things can change in our society and in our country. To see how they love their roots and their music, their own thing, it was just like, "Wow, I didn't know we had this. I didn't know there were so many people so proud and so open to share." And that was one of the reasons that I said, "I want to be part of this. I want to learn more. I want to bring this influence into my music."
