The jarana huasteca, jarana de son huasteco or jaranita is a string instrument. It is most often called simply jarana.
It is a guitar-like chordophone with 5 strings. It is smaller than the guitarra huapanguera and usually forms part of the trío huasteco ensemble, along with the quinta huapanguera and violin, taking on the role of the rhythmical accompaniment to the ensemble.
This jarana huasteca was made in the huasteca region of Mexico in the state of Veracruz and is made of Cedar wood for the back, sides, and top, and a beautiful pyrograph design for the rosette and top.
These are handmade instruments and might differ slightly from the one pictured.
