Talented musicians from all over Jalisco and points beyond will flock to Chapala over the coming week to engage in the 13th Encuentro de Arpas, Salterios y Mas, an offbeat music festival featuring traditional Mexican and Latin American sounds performed on folk harps, psalteries and a wide array of other string and acoustical instruments.
