Did not read through the whole book, however I can't help but make a little correction re El Encuentro de Jaraneros in Veracruz. The word "jaranero", at least in this context (to the best of my knowledge) doesn't really mean "reveler" (although I'm sure the jaraneros are indeed reveling), but is rather a general term for a person involved in Son Jarocho (musician, dancer, or poet). Also, the word "jarana" in this region does not refer to a dance but to an instrument, an 8-10 stringed descendent of the baroque guitar which provides the rhythmic foundation for the melody in Son Jarocho. The dance is called zapateado.
