Honoring Corridos and Dr. Celestino Fernandez

“Running tales” inspired by real events, corridos amplify voices often muffled by dominant culture. This year local corridistas perform corridos by Celestino Fernandez, a corrido scholar and emcee of the festival’s famous corrido contest (founded in 1982). A composer of over 50 corridos, Fernandez recently released Corridos de Celestino, a double album featuring corridos on immigration, the shooting of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, and the massacre of 19 students and two teachers in Uvalde, Texas, among other events.

Saturday, October 14, 4:00-4:45pm at the Tucson ER & Hospital Lawn Stage
