San Jose State University Presents:
Corridos the Remix by Luis Valdez, writer of Zoot Suit and winner of a 2016 National Medal of the Arts, is a unique fusion of music, theatre, opera, mime and comedy.
While the title is Spanish, the songs and stories come from the Latino, African American, Asian, Portuguese and French cultures, using both traditional and contemporary material and music.
Father and son duo, Luis and Kinan Valdez, bring together drama, comedy, theatre and music to tell a “corrido.”
The production highlights the passing of stories from generation to generation, specifically old school grandfather to young, rebelious granddaughter, with an accompaniment of music from Latino, African-American, Asian and various other cultures.
