"Legends of Mexico-Leyendas de Mexico"
An original production by Nuestro Canto
Gerardo Calderón & Nelda Reyes

Mexico is very well known for its legends, myths and tales. We have legends since the time of the Aztecs, Mayans, Toltecs, Hucholes, as well as legends after the arrival of the Europeans to the American Continent. We have legends that talk about love, nature and everyday life. Nuestro Canto has gathered legends from all over Mexico and has composed music especially for the legends we narrate during our performances.
