Zenen Zeferino Huervo is a jarana player, singer, composer, and poet from Veracruz, Mexico. Born in a family of traditional musicians, Mr. Zeferino Huervo has been one of the major figures in the field of son jarocho (the traditional music of Veracruz) and is largely responsible for reviving the genre in contemporary performance and recording after it had almost disappeared during the 1960s and 1970s. Zeferino Huervo’s musical training comes from the environment in which he grew up. From an early age he ventured into poetic improvisation, which is a common art in the state of Veracruz. As such, he has developed a particular style of singing, playing, and improvising, which has made him one of the most important figures of traditional musical expression in Mexico. Currently, Mr. Zeferino is spending time in New York City as part of an artistic residency with local group Radio Jarocho.
