The annu­al Fes­ti­val de San­ti­a­go start­ed in Querétaro on Wednes­day. There are simul­ta­ne­ous per­for­mances on-going dur­ing the evenings in many of the gar­dens around town. We went to see the Nortec Col­lec­tive show at the rec­om­men­da­tion of our Span­ish teach­ers, who were excit­ed all day. To intro­duce us to the music before the show, we were pass­ing around one teacher’s ipod while stand­ing around the immi­gra­tion office wait­ing to get fin­ger­print­ed. I end­ed up danc­ing with a group of my teach­ers and compañeros in the streets for the whole con­cert. Real­ly good com­bi­na­tion of tra­di­tion­al Mex­i­can styles with elec­tron­i­ca, and a great live show.
