About the event

¡Golondrina! is a musical confluence of song and poetic storytelling celebrating California’s rich his/herstory, including abounding contributions of its original inhabitants, languages and vibrant folklore. Celebrating her roots from Baja to Alta California, Liliana Herrera’s ¡Golondrina! embarks on a Funklóric lyrical odyssey – one dimension, border and song at a time.

Through kaleidoscopic vocals, soundscapes, instrumentals and dance La Golondrina (epitomized by the famed migrating Swallows of Capistrano) narrates riveting stories from her wanderings which dispel the myths of passive consent to colonialism: from the romanticized Spanish Missions, booming gold rush cities, cascading sierras, coastlines and deserts to the toiled fertile valleys of our golden state.

While annual migration of La Golondrina and innumerable species around the world is revered as majestic, migration of “select” humans is criminalized and politicized. From coastal fog to blaring desert heat, La Golondrina bravely traverses anthropological labyrinths and ponderings: What is humanity capable of? She wonders. While some stories inspire; others fume with ire. With change, this migrating swallow seeks shelter between the seasons as she glides her musical heART in wistful song.

 In a musical collage of stories, ¡Golondrina! meets the moth!

A concert-novela – Funklórica style: May 3 and 4, 2024!

Organized by: Brava! For Women in the Arts
