After my recent research into Mexican history, I was looking forward to visiting Southern México. I thought I might hear La Bamba performed and I might meet Afro-Mexicans in Cozumel. As it turned out, I saw folkloric dancers perform the son jorocho song as I hoped, see earlier post here. Two dancers were of Afro-Mexican ancestry. We met folks working at the hotel and in the city of San Miguel who were of African descent. Afro-Mexicans also numbered among the hotel guests.
I observed that Afro-Mexicans are an integral part of Southern Mexican society. From what I saw in one week in Cozumel, I think Afro-Mexico is beautiful.
