BACKGROUNDCorazόn Norte is a record made up of songs and interviews that seek to incarnate, through art, the stories of migrants. The record was born at the Kino Border Initiative soup kitchen on the Mexican American border as an effort to gift each traveler a song in honor of their journey. Experiences, feelings, and dreams make up the raw material of this record. Each story is unique, yet they all have in common a shared border and a shared dream of heading north.
LA MUNA Natalia Serna, also known as La Muna, is a Colombia- American musician and sociologist that moved to the border city of Nogales, Sonora as a volunteer at the Kino Border Initiative Soup Kitchen. Corazόn Norte has been presented at migrant soup kitchens, detention centers, universities and theaters across Mexico, Guatemala and the U.S. Her music on social justice has been used by the Discovery Channel, Two America’s film, Jesuit Refugee Services, Bread For the World, and Creighton Backpacker film el Deportado among others.
