Heroes & Horses  Corridos from the Arizona-Sonora Borderlands  CD

Heroes & Horses Corridos from the Arizona-Sonora Borderlands CD

  • $1599


The corridos in this collection come from the region comprising southern
Arizona and northern Sonora, one that was divided politically by the Gadsden Purchase of 1853, but is unified by a Mexican folk culture. These corridos - the word translates loosely as "ballads" - are story songs that tell tales of revolution, crime, heroic showdowns, horse races, and disasters in this overlooked part of the world. This collection is a slice of life along the Arizona-Sonora border as it has been lived and memorialized in corridos over the course of the 20th century. Rich with folk traditions of northern Mexico, rarely are the engaging voices of these balladeers accompanied by more than a guitar and an accordion. This is an enhanced CD including 71 minutes of music, extensive notes, photos and complete lyrics in Spanish and English. There are 16 performances.
