Program Description

Singer-songwriter Shawn Kiehne’s story is a transnational one, where the main character—a U.S.-born Anglo—adopts a Mexican singing cowboy persona and finds his fame and fortune by tapping into deeply held beliefs about Mexican pride and nationalism Kiehne, a.k.a. El Gringo, is widely known across Mexico for his autobiographical song “El Corrido del Gringo.” This Norteño music phenomenon, recently featured in The New York Times, brings his guitar to provide a taste of this hugely popular musical genre.
