    Musicians and composers, Juan Manuel Barco from Seattle and Bonifacio Dominguez of Lewiston, together with cultural activist and singer, Ana Maria Schachtell of Boise, will talk about the traditional Mexican corrido or ballad and how this art form is the perfect tool to celebrate the history of the Latinos in Idaho. They will select and perform some of the stories and ballads included in the book “Nuestros Corridos: 150 Years of Latino History through Song & Word – 1863 to 2013.” They will be joined by other local musicians who also wrote songs and poetry for the project.
