Student Performing Corrido
In celebration of the centennial of the Mexican Revolution, USC and LACMA will host The Corrido of LA. Students in grades 7–12 throughout Los Angeles are invited to commemorate the Mexican Revolution by composing a corrido, or ballad song, about the city they call home. Since the nineteenth century the corrido functioned as the people’s oral “newspaper,” documenting events of everyday social and political life.
Los Geekz, student producer's of KCET Departures, whose corrido is described below, as well as "Los Angeles," a corrido by Erendira Hernandez, will be performed by OZOMATLI at LACMA's The Corrido of L.A.
