About Cornbread & Tortillas

Cornbread & Tortillas is a collective of Appalachian and Latino artists whose mission is to build community by sharing art, music, dance and cultural heritage. Through outreach events, educational shows, workshops and performances they celebrate similarities and differences to create unity in a diverse world.

The centerpiece of their work together is the Cornbread and Tortillas Folk Opera, a dynamic bilingual production that features stories, music,and dancing. Audiences will journey from the Appalachian region of Eastern Kentucky to Mexico, Nicaragua, Ecuador and beyond, exploring connections and celebrating our shared human experience all the while!
