The musicians of Jarana perform and teach from their home base Lincoln, Nebraska. Lead Daniel Martinez formed Jarana in 2009 for versatility and added creative energy. Pronounced JaRaNa (HAH-RAH-nah), it is a noun and verb meaning an event when all ages come together socially in a public place to enjoy and celebrate with food, games, music and dancing. It’s used much like the English “party,” but with richer meaning and more energy. All shows are family-friendly. Jarana is a band built on energetic, danceable music blending South American music styles, Mexican folk music and Latin dance styles. Jarana’s music blends South American, African and Mediterranean beats such as Flamenco, Rumba and Salsa, accompanied with authentic, traditional instruments. Band members are natives of Peru, Mexico and the US.
