On the way to turning 5 years on stage and despite the pandemic caused by COVID-19, the Huriata group remains active on social networks and is preparing a concert for the platforms of the Ministry of Culture of Michoacán (Secum).

It is a group that preserves the legacy of the traditional music of great Juan Bautista Silva, who sowed in his children a love for the Purepecha melodies, explained the teacher Joaquín Bautista Ramírez.

“It is of utmost importance to continue with a tradition of many years that my father left us, a legacy so beautiful that we want to keep current in the public’s taste,” he said.

In the concert they recorded at the State Museum, they included the abajeños Rumbo a Zacán and El aplauso, as well as the little sons Carolina and Florentina, a pirekua and a medley of Mexican songs.

Played by Joaquín Bautista Ramírez and Carlos Padilla on guitars, as well as Joaquín Bautista as first Violin, Abraham Bautista on Double Bass and Yuri Ríos Campuzano also on violin.

Huriata is a Purépecha word that translates as sun and thus, with the intensity of the star king, they hope to continue on stage and help pass the time better towards 2021.

Finally, they expressed that they hope to continue with life, and that their purpose is to keep the tradition of Purépecha music alive.
