Songs for the Holy Coyote: Ghost Smuggling Ballads and the Migrant Journey

Date: 
Friday, April 30, 2021 - 3:30pm

Teresita Lozano
Post-Doctoral Fellow, West Virginia University

Based on musical testimonies circulating on social media, several undocumented migrants are sharing a collective ghost story of survival, religious devotion, and an apparition who guides them across the U.S.-Mexico border. This talk will discuss the new phenomenon of corrido (Mexican ballad) composition and performance that narrates the near-death experiences of undocumented migrants and their ghostly encounters with El Santo Coyote (Holy Smuggler).
