Songs of the Chicano Movement

Listen and read the lyrics to songs from the early 1970s, written and performed by Augustine E. Cordova, a member of the UMAS organization at the University of Colorado. 

“Yo Soy Chicano” celebrates a proud identity; the corrido “Los Seis de Boulder” mourns the death of six young Chicano activists in two car bombings in 1974.
