Juan Zaragoza leads a performance by local musicians (students, staff, and alumni) of favorite corridos from Mexico and from the “Border."  The group will also perform boleros from Cuba and Mexico. A corrido is a popular narrative song and poetry form, a ballad. The bolero is a slow-tempo Latin song with origins in Cuba that later found a prolific home in Mexico and eventually in the US.
