Corrido Songwriting Workshop

Corrido Songwriting Workshop
Led by Artist Amalia Mondragón
Saturday, July 1st
10am to 11am
Register for location information.

Join Live in America, Springdale as we host visiting artist Amalia Mondragón’s Corrido Songwriting Workshop. Amalia Mondragón, a Juárez-El Paso based singer/songwriter, will share her study and practice of writing corridos, Mexican ballads that narrate historical events.

We’ll hang out in the residency’s backyard as Amalia leads us through a lesson on the history and metrical structure of the corrido before we attempt to write our own. The workshop is appropriate for experienced songwriters as well as true beginners. We’ll provide all the tools you need for the workshop along with pan dulce, coffee, and agua fresca. 

The workshop is free to attend, but space is limited. Please register HERE
