Guillermo Hernandez Corrido Film

Watch the entire 56 minute film “El Mundo del Corrido de Guillermo Hernandez,” about the late UCLA professor Guillermo Hernandez and his love for Mexican American vernacular music, with special emphasis on corridos.

Guillermo Hernandez was a great friend of the Arhoolie Foundation, and a primary moving force behind the Frontera Collection Digitization Project and our partnership with UCLA. His introduction of Los Tigres del Norte to the project led to their generous support, without which this work would not have been possible.

This loving film, edited by Maureen Gosling, features many live musical performances from the 1996 and 2000 Congresos del Corrido, footage of the UCLA press conference recognizing the contribution of Los Tigres del Norte, and interviews with Chris Strachwitz, Jaime Nicolopulos, and Guillermo himself.
