2011 Festival: October 14-16, 2011
Applications Open May 15.
The corrido (ballad), a musical-poetic folk form, has been part of the Mexican musical tradition for generations and it continues to be as popular today as it was during the period of the Mexican Revolution. Tucson Meet Yourself has sponsored a very popular Corrido Contest for over 20 years and will do so again this year. We encourage both professional and non-professional singers/musicians to participate, and all topics are eligible for entry, although we accept only one entry per participant. Five $150.00 cash prizes will be awarded.
