Music to write corridos by…

Octavio Solis, who is adapting John Steinbeck’s The Pastures of Heaven for its world premiere on our Main Stage in 2010, sent me this list some time ago. It’s the playlist he put together to inspire his crafting of the corrido that will tell the story of the Lopez Sisters. If the song has a link, click on it to hear, sample, or download the track.
