[ARCHIVED] "La LLorona: The Wailing Woman" presented at Branigan Library

The legend of La Llorona is known throughout the world and tells the tale of her eerie, spine chilling cries as she searches for her lost, drowned darling children. Her story has been seen in ancient European mythology. Early Spanish settlers claimed to have known of her. But in New Mexico, people claim that she lived next door or that an ancestor actually knew her.

Rosalia de Aragon, a multi-talented actor and vocalist brings famous Hispanic history and tradition to life. Rosalia is from a family of accomplished visual and literary artists. She loves teaching New Mexico history to student audiences through stories and song.

This program is free of charge to the public. It is made possible by the New Mexico Humanities Council Chautauqua Program, with funding from the New Mexico Office of Cultural Affairs. Locally, the program is sponsored by The Friends of Thomas Branigan Library.
