IDAHO CORRIDO PROJECT

150 Years of Idaho Latino History through Song and Word

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.” 

~~~~~~~~

Juan Manuel Barco is an accomplished musician and compositor from Seattle, WA. He is originally from Texas, but has lived in WA since the late 60’s when he was stationed there with the US Army.  He has played with famous “Conjunto” musicians and wrote the corrido “Don Luis el Tejano” in honor of his father. In 2013, Juan Manuel was inducted into the Tejano Music Hall of Fame. Since 1994 he has been performing for school programs through the Northwest Folklife Educations Department. In 2010, he joined the Idaho Corrido Project and led a group of local musicians to write songs and poetry about the history of the Latinos in Idaho.

Bonifacio “Bodie” Dominguez, was born in Olmito, Texas. He served in the USMC and served 13 months of combat duty in Vietnam as a radio man from 1968 to 1970. He has been a musician and performer for over 38 years and is a member of the Western Music Association and the Academy of Western Music where he has participated in Cowboy Gatherings all over the US and Canada.  He helps host a radio program on KRLC Lewiston, ID, called the American Heritage Show where Western Music and Poetry are promoted. Since 2010 he has been part of the Idaho Corrido Music Project doing presentations around the state on the History of the Latinos in Idaho.

Ana Maria Nevarez-Schachtell was born in Chihuahua, Mexico and came to Idaho via California in 1974.  She has a BA Multi-Cultural /Bilingual Education including endorsements in Spanish and German from Boise State University. She spearheaded the creation of the Hispanic Cultural Center of Idaho in Nampa, founded the Stay-in-School Quinceañera Program (motivational program for Latino middle school students), and serves on the board of the Idaho Latino Scholarship Foundation.  She is the Project Director for the Idaho Corrido Music Project (2010-14) sponsored mainly by the Idaho Humanities Council.  She also participated in the Jesus Urquides Memorial Project established by the City of Boise during its Sesquicentennial Celebration. In 2014, she was awarded the Governor’s Award for Excellence in the Support for the Arts.
