The History Of Rock And Roll: Ritchie Valens

Sep. 19 - 11:00 AM / The GRAMMY Museum®

A forefather of Chicano rock, Ritchie Valens maximized his tragically short eight-month career and paved the way for today's Latino artists. The History Of Rock And Roll: Ritchie Valens will teach students about "The Day the Music Died" as well as the history of the Hispanic rock and roll movement. The program will also discuss the stories behind Valens' classics "La Bamba" and "Donna," and show how important Valens' legacy is to his native Southern California.
