Monday Music by La Victoria


If you weren’t able to join us in Birmingham, or catch up with SFA on the live stream, SFA has good news: symposium presentations will be shared online over the next two weeks. Let’s start Monday morning with song.

La Victoria opened the Winter Symposium with a concert that included several corridos. You may recall Gustavo Arellano’s article from Gravy about these traditional Mexican ballads. The corridos performed in Birmingham were a mix of songs written and debuted at SFA’s all symposium, and a few ballads penned in a workshop before Winter Symposium with members of Birmingham’s Latino community.

SFA thanks the Greater Birmingham Convention and Visitors Center and Sweet Home Alabama, the state’s department for travel and tourism, for their support of this event.
