The Corrido of L.A.

  • Year: 2010
  • Location: LACMA
  • Collaborators: LACMA, Ozomatli, LAUSD, Gajin Fujita

Co-curator. Partnership between USC, LAUSD, LACMA, and Ozomatli. In celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Mexican Revolution, I asked students of all backgrounds throughout LAUSD to write their own corrido about the Los Angeles they live in. Project elements included: corrido writing workshops held in LAUSD classrooms, a website archiving of student song submissions, and a final concert at LACMA featuring select student songs performed live in collaboration with the band Ozomatli.
