Stream It Or Skip It: ‘Fandango at the Wall’ on HBO, a Documentary Capturing the Authenticity of Mexican Son Jarocho Musicians

Published

on

By

Everyone knows the song “La Bamba,” but many may not realize it’s a folk song in the son jarocho style, a centuries-old form originating from Mexico’s Veracruz region. Son jarocho is the focus of HBO Latino’s latest original movie, Fandango at the Wall, a documentary that follows New York musicians Arturo O’Farrill and Kabir Seghal as they travel through Veracruz with Mexican artist Jorge Castillo, meeting and gathering indigenous artists to perform at the Tijuana border wall. Music luminaries Carlos Santana and Quincy Jones are credited producers on the film, which isn’t short on inspiring musical performances.

The Gist: The sun shimmers off the water on the Tijuana playa, and the water laps the shore placidly. Immediately to the north, a behemoth of a border wall mars the scenery. O’Farrill, head of the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra, and Seghal, an author, record producer and bassist, believed it to be the perfect setting for a concert that would be a show of unity between U.S. and Mexican artists, pretty much in defiance of the wall and all the ugly things it symbolizes. They contacted Castillo, organizer of an annual “fandango” music festival in Tijuana, who takes them on a tour of Veracruz, where they meet people who’ve been playing son jarocho for generations. O’Farrill is Mexican-Irish, born in Mexico City and the son of a Cuban musician; Seghal is Indian-American. The future is hyphenated, Seghal asserts.

Castillo drives them through rural Mexico to meet Don Andres Vega, a 90-year-old son jarocho legend, and his daughter Martha Vega. Don Andres sings and strums, and Martha plays zapateado, in which she dances on a platform, stomping out the rhythm. Ramon Gutierrez is a lead guitarist who speaks enthusiastically about the expressive playing of Jimi Hendrix. Tacho Utrera speaks fondly of his father, a farmhand who used to ride his horse to perform at fandangos; Tacho plays alongside his wife, Wendy Cao Romero, who clacks out rhythms on a jawbone. These people often make their own instruments, carving different variations of Mexican guitars out of a single piece of wood. Many learned to play from their parents, who learned from their parents; they in turn teach their children to play son jarocho. “I’ve never been a teacher — I’ve been a father,” says musician Patricio Hidalgo about passing on the tradition to his offspring.

Only when they meet Fernando Guadarrama does the tone of the documentary turn toward politics. They speak about how art and justice function together; they sometimes speak of their frustrations with international relations, but their tone is always optimistic. Violence is one of the unfortunate realities of life in Veracruz, where drug cartels rule; Wendy Cao Romero’s voice cracks when she talks about how she grew up playing, running free in Mexico, which today’s children can’t do because of all the violence. Son jarocho is what these people lean on in both happy times and sad times. “This is not music,” O’Farrill astutely observes. “This is life.”

What Movies Will It Remind You Of?: Netflix’s Los Tigres del Norte at Folsom Prison, about the legendary mariachi band, also addresses Mexican music and politics in an engaging manner. And French musician Matthieu Chadid similarly gathered musicians from far-flung international locales to make a spirited statement about solidarity in the documentary We Are One.

Performance Worth Watching: Guadarrama is a truth-speaking firebrand, a musician, emcee and political barker who enlivens the film considerably with his charisma, passion and optimism.

Memorable Dialogue: It deserves to be repeated: “This is not music. This is life.”

Sex and Skin: None.

Our Take: Fandango at the Wall lets us tag along as O’Farrill pursues a noble passion project, and never once does it come off as self-aggrandizing. It’s just one musician seeking out other musicians to play together for a noble cause — and that cause isn’t anything specific, really. These people never get lost in the weeds of modern politics; they’re philosophical about broad ideas and concepts, primarily, how music functions as a means of unity, celebration and healing in culture, and especially this niche of Mexican culture.

Director Varda Bar-Kar doesn’t over- or understate the film’s themes, keeping a steady focus on the music, which is uniformly wonderful. Eventually, all parties gather at the Tijuana beach-wall and perform; they do so again when O’Farrill arranges for everyone to play in New York. But these aren’t the film’s great moments — not even close. It’s experiencing these musicians perform in their village squares without amplification or pretense. It’s seeing them in their homes, showing us their gorgeous handmade instruments and telling their stories. Music is so deeply ingrained in their lives, you’ll truly believe they couldn’t live without it.

Our Call: STREAM IT. Fandango at the Wall‘s mini-profiles of true son jarocho musicians are truly inspiring portraits capturing the authenticity of their musical expression. Those moments are simply wonderful.

After initially looking like he had met his Death Date, Zeke Landon (Matt Long) was resurrected at the end of season two, which means anything is possible in the world of Manifest.

As for the Major (Elizabeth Marvel), she was killed by Saanvi Bahl (Parveen Kaur), so that’s the end of that.

Other major players include:

  • Melissa Roxburgh as Michaela Stone
  • Josh Dallas as Ben Stone
  • Athena Karkanis as Grace Stone
  • JR Ramirez as Jared Vasquez
  • Luna Blaise as Olive Stone
  • Jack Messina as Cal Stone

    The Americans star Holly Taylor has been cast as Angelina, a passenger on Flight 828 who hasn’t yet popped up on Ben’s radar.

    She will play an “integral part in the lives of the Stone family this season”, according to Deadline.

    In a video that creator Jeff Rake posted on Twitter to celebrate 828 Day, he also revealed that a long-lost character will “make a shocking reappearance”, and someone from Grace’s side of the family is going to rock up and cause issues.

    Manifest NBC season 3 plot: What will happen?

    In the video that Rake shared, he revealed a number of other key season three plot points.

    There will be a time jump of roughly three months following the finale, with Ben and Saanvi focused on finding out more about that aeroplane tailfin which was unearthed – one of the biggest season two bombshells was the reveal that part of the plane for Flight 828 had been lying at the bottom of the ocean the entire time.

    The title of the season three premiere has been titled…’Tailfin’.

    Rake also touched upon Jared’s “complicated” new romantic relationship, Michaela and Zeke moving in with “an unexpected third party”, and the morally murky nature of some of the passengers from the plane.

    “We have her going forward with the real-world turmoil of having committed a terrible, terrible crime and that raises all sorts of real-world questions,” he said. “Will Vance help her try to cover this up? Will he be able to help her cover this up even if he wants to?

    “Will any of the cops that we know and love be involved in that? Could Saanvi get away with murder? That’s half the equation that’s going to play out throughout season 3 in a very suspenseful, compelling way.”
