Son Huasteco is one of 8 Mexican son styles and is a traditional Mexican musical style originating in the 6 state area of Northeastern Mexico called La Huasteca. It dates back to the end of the 19th century and is influenced by Spanish and indigenous cultures. Usually it is played by a Trio Huasteco composed of a guitarra quinta huapanguera (a five course, eight stringed guitar-like instrument) a Jarana Huasteca (a stringed instrument related to the jarana) and a violin. Singers will often use the falsetto register. The son Huasteco is particularly noteworthy for its flamboyant and virtuoso violin parts, although the style varies from state to state. Two different dances are often danced to Son Huasteco: the Zapateado and the Huapango. Improvisation plays a strong role in the style, with musicians creating their own lyrics and arrangements to a standard repertoire.

Related genres are Son Jarocho and Fandango español.

Son Huasteco is party music played by groups made up of three musicians (known as Trios). The instruments these Trios employ are the Jarana (a small guitar), a huapanguera (a big guitar) and a violin. The violin plays the role that the harp does in the Son Jarocho, carrying the melody. Similarly, both styles use dancers to mark out rhythm. The wooden dance floor (Tarima) is arguably an additional instrument. Traditional zapateado dancers bang the floor with their boots and shoes in time with the rhythm – a phenomenon akin to tap dancing.
