corridos_cabdiv_500sq

Special Collections hosts its third annual evening of song, featuring local musicians who perform Mexican corridos in Spanish. Similar to English ballads, corridos tell the story of an event, a person or a place, and often include words of wisdom for those tempted by lust or greed. A brief lecture, “An Introduction to the Corrido,” will be given by Bob Diaz, Special Collections curator for the performing arts.
