Una Noche de Corridos

Guitar

Special Collections hosts its third annual evening of song, featuring Juan Aguilar and other local musicians performing 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, titled “An Introduction to the Corrido” will be given by Bob Diaz, Special Collections curator for the performing arts. 

Thank you to Mexican American Studies for their support of this program.
