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.
