A sample of our show...
Building community through music, culture, and food.
Cornbread & Tortillas is a collective of Appalachian and Latino artists based in Kentucky whose mission is to build community by sharing art, music, dance, and cultural heritage. Through presenting our signature folk opera, our school assemblies, and our community workshops, we celebrate our similarities and differences to create unity in a diverse world.
The centerpiece of our work together is the CORNBREAD & TORTILLAS theatrical show, a dynamic bilingual production that features stories, music, and dancing. Audiences 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!
