Regarding The National Huapango Dance Contest. Huapango is a traditional Mexican dance and music style heavily associated with the indigenous culture of Mexico. The annual Mexican national huapango dance contest is held in San Joaquín, now in its 48th year (2017).
Also see . . . Huapango Huasteco performing "El Querreque" (in náhuatl and spanish). This is an example of a traditional huapango musical trio, interesting as they sing in both spanish and náhuatl.
